Generations

Generations includes the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors, as well as all those committed to honoring and carrying on the survivors’ legacies.

We believe that we have a moral responsibility to our parents, grandparents and those who perished to make sure that the Holocaust is not forgotten or denied. We are committed to educating our community and future generations by preserving the memories of the past and keeping our families’ voices alive.

As the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors, we accept their legacy as a gift and a call to: Never Forget

As their descendants, the Holocaust is part of our history, too. We can not let anyone deny that our parents, grandparents, and families suffered and survived. Some of our family members became refugees before the war, others were hidden. Some were imprisoned, tortured or murdered. Some of our parents and grandparents resisted, fighting valiantly with homemade weapons to protect themselves, and their families.

All of our families were uprooted and forever changed by the Holocaust. One day it will be our turn to pass their legacy on to our children and grandchildren.
