Witness Project is a collaborative process between high school students and Holocaust survivors. Together the students and survivors explore the issues of loss and resilience, war, and trauma during the Holocaust.
You’ll become a new witness when you hear the meaningful stories of Holocaust survivors as told by the students. You’ll also get a glimpse into the valuable relationships created during their time together by viewing the students’ artwork inspired by the survivors.
APPROXIMATELY 30,000 HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS LIVE IN THE NEW YORK AREA.
MORE THAN 40% LIVE IN POVERTY.
People who have lived through the unimaginable are just scraping by, barely covering the cost of food, rent, medication, and other necessities. For many, UJA’s network of nonprofits serves as their lifeline and tends to their physical, emotional, and social well-being.
YOUR GENEROSITY IS LIFE-CHANGING.
Funds raised will support services for Holocaust survivors in the community, including therapeutic programs such as UJA-Federation’s Witness Project.
