Some 100 Holocaust survivors and their families are participating in a new campaign of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference) called “Our Holocaust Story: Pledge to Remember.”
Seeing survivors with their family members send a powerful message, said Greg Schneider, executive vice president of the Claims Conference.
“They didn’t just survive the Holocaust, they went on to live, to build a family, a family that would not exist if they had not survived,” stated Schneider. “Each survivor has a profound impact on the world, and it is our responsibility to carry forward the torch of their testimony. We should all make a pledge to remember.”
More than 50 museums and institutions stateside and overseas are supporting the campaign, according to the Claims Conference.
