MyHeritage, the sponsors of this newsletter, received some excellent publicity recently in a television segment on an Israeli prime time news show, watched by over 25% of Israel’s population. It featured an interview with MyHeritage Founder and CEO, Gilad Japhet, and showcased MyHeritage as a company that not only does well as a business, but also does good in the world.
The segment highlights some of MyHeritage’s pro bono work, including helping to discover heirs for unclaimed assets confiscated during World War II, returning looted art to its rightful owners and a global crowdsourcing project to digitally preserve the world’s cemeteries with BillionGraves.
