Safekeeping Stories of the Holocaust

The Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center {HHREC} has announced the start of new workshops designed specifically for family members of Holocaust survivors called Safekeeping Stories of the Holocaust.  The workshop will teach the Fundamentals of Storykeeping and capture your family’s Holocaust story in five to six parts that include events before, during, and after the war, as well as your own next-generation reflections and insights.

 

For the past several years, this workshop has had a profound impact on the lives of family members of survivors throughout Westchester. Small groups ensure that participants will be able to ask questions. The 8 session workshops are offered in Larchmont at 4 Gilder Street, suite 4, starting on February 5 at 1pm. In Harrison, the workshop will take place at The Jewish Community Center of Harrison, 130 Union Avenue, starting on January 28 at 7:30pm. The Northern Westchester location is Bet Torah, 60 Smith Avenue, Mr. Kisco, starting February 5 at 7pm.

 

Basic computer literacy is required in order to access materials from the HHREC website at home. Expect to spend 60-90 minutes between sessions working at home.

The instructor, Jill Sarkozi, will give some guidance regarding historical research, but research is not the focus of this workshop and is conducted independently at your discretion.

 

2020 is the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. Mark this moment in history by safekeeping your family member’s story of survival. “These workshops have been extremely helpful to our organization. I’m grateful to Jill and Safekeeping Stories for helping the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center continue its mission,” explained Millie Jasper, Executive Director of The Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center.

 

Workshop registration includes a free membership to the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center with benefits at the Household level of $100.for all registrations.
