Holocaust Speaker Opportunities
At the JCRC of Greater Washington our work of remembrance, education, and advocacy for Holocaust survivors is a year-round commitment.
Holocaust survivors in the Greater Washington area have long volunteered to share their personal stories with members of the community. These important and inspiring stories are shared with schools, youth and community organizations, faith congregations, and business, civic and governmental groups. JCRC speakers offer a wide variety of Holocaust-related experiences.
With the aging and death of survivors, it is more critical than ever to provide testimony of this part of history. The children and grandchildren of survivors are stepping up to share remarkable stories of their families’ resilience and forgiveness, and to remind us that the effects of genocide can last for many generations.
Those who grew up with Holocaust survivor parents or grandparents have a unique story to share. Some speak about their parents’ Holocaust experiences; a few have memorialized the stories in publications. Our trained descendant speakers share their experiences about what it was like growing up as a child of survivors and the impact it has had on their lives.
