Saving Your Family’s

Holocaust History

The Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center {HHREC} in  Westchester and the Shames JCC will offer a free 18 week workshop for people who are children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors and who want to preserve their family’s story. The program is limited to 14 participants and will be held on Tuesdays, from 1:30-3:00 beginning January 29, 2019. Registration is required.


“Safekeeping Stories of the Holocaust Workshop Series” will be led by Jill Sarkozi, who is the founder of Safekeeping Stories and the creator of “Storykeeping”. She is the daughter of a Holocaust survivor from Hungary. Facilitators Joan Poulin and Debby Ziering are also daughters of survivors and are members of the HHREC speakers’ bureau. The workshop will help family members engage in “Storykeeping”, a comprehensive system in which they will consider the narrative they have inherited, how they are part of the story and how the story will live on to the next generation. Individual stories will be crafted and finished in this workshop.


Registration is required by contacting Millie Jasper, Executive Director, Holocaust and  Human Rights Education Center at mjasper@hhrecny.org.  While this program has limited space, additional programs are offered by the HHREC. The Harold and Elaine Shames Jewish Community Center is located at 371 South Broadway, Tarrytown.
