World Federation Of Jewish Child Survivors Of The Holocaust And Descendants
Joining hands and hearts to keep Holocaust memory alive, fighting hatred and genocide
We are the Jewish Child Survivors of the Holocaust persecuted by the Nazis in ghettos, in camps, in hiding, on the run or forced to leave Nazi
occupied Europe. Our objectives are to represent the interests of the child survivor community, to support each other, to keep alive the memory of
the six million Jews – including the 1.5 million children – murdered during the Holocaust and to pass on our legacy to future generations. We pursue
these objectives by telling the stories of our survival, by community interaction, education, holding conferences and by fighting anti-Semitism
