Second Generation Holocaust Group

Second Generation is a network of the children of Holocaust survivors. We are linked together with the common goal of preserving and honoring our legacy, providing support, tackling issues of mutual interest and informing and teaching future generations.

Survivors of the Holocaust

The generation of Holocaust survivors has stories of their lives in Europe, both before and during the war. Survivors may feel that the memories, although difficult, must be shared to be preserved. The JCC offers an opportunity for survivors to come together and talk about their own unique chapter of Jewish history. Come meet new friends with similar backgrounds in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. The JCC also offers entitlement assistance, case management, home visits and crisis intervention to any survivor. Café Europa programs will be planned including social events, holiday celebrations and festive lunches and trips.

This program is made possible by a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, Inc.
