Hear From Those Who Survived, Those Who Liberated, and Those Who Survived the Survivors
"Pick a name of a child who did not survive the Holocaust and remember them so that they will not have died in vain." - Joe Engel, Survivor, Charleston, SC

The five types of speakers available for your program:

2Gs and 3Gs Needed!
Our Holocaust Speakers Bureau seeks children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors and concentration camp liberators (known as 2Gs and 3Gs) who would be willing to visit schools and organizations. Our aging speakers are finding it increasingly more difficult to travel and speak. We hope to expand our speaking network to include 2Gs and 3Gs.
Please contact Rebecca Engel at 843-614-6484 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or would like more information.
