Memories Alive ZOOM-Begegnungen mit Holocaustüberlebenden

The events of the Holocaust seem to lie far in the history. However, they are only a few generations away from us. The witnesses of the Holocaust, back then children and teenagers, still live among us. Each one of them has a deeply moving story to tell. Our generation is the last one to hear their stories first hand – and this is what we want to do in our new project ‘Memories Alive’.

During the lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Holocaust survivors have been forced to endure weeks of social isolation, which often intensifies their traumas and evokes difficult memories. It is for this reason that March of Life has launched unique ZOOM-Encounters with befriended Holocaust survivors, groups of students and young people. The project has been met with great enthusiasm – both from the survivors as well as the young participants.

We invite you to gather a group of people and register to hear ‘Memories Alive’ on ZOOM. The March of Life staff will assist you with the preparations and arrange a meeting with a Holocaust survivor for you.

What Holocaust Survivors say about the project

Call for Donations

It is our heart’s desire to give Holocaust survivors a voice. Since it will not be possible for us to hear their stories in person for very long, these meetings are worth every investment. Your donation will enable us to continue doing so in the years to come.
