As time goes on, the importance of telling the stories of Holocaust survivors becomes more and more imperative. Scroll to the bottom of this page to hear some of their stories today.
The Israel Campus Roundtable is partnering with From The Depths to provide ongoing Holocaust programming to Boston area campuses. Last semester, From The Depths visited Harvard University, Boston University, Emerson College, and Clark University to share their story and the importance of their work.
They now need your help. From The Depths has been working with Holocaust survivors to record their stories. The survivors want to know who will be their witness, and you have the opportunity to keep their memories alive for generations to come. Hear from some survivors below.
How can you help?
1. Download the "I will be a witness" poster, and take a picture of yourself holding the sign to show the survivors that they will not be forgotten. Click the image below to download the sign.
Please email your photo to Elan@IsraelCampusRoundtable.org in the highest-resolution possible.
2. Share your photo on Facebook and tag the From The Depths Facebook Page. Please like the page to stay up to date with the latest From The Depths news.
3. If you know any Holocaust survivors, please record a brief video of them telling their story, and asking, "who will be my witness?"
4. Encourage your friends and family to take pictures with the "I will be a witness" sign as well. The goal is to have photos of people from around the world showing their support.
5. If you want to take a bigger role in this amazing organization, apply for a paid internship! Click the document below for more information.
