"Hearing one person tell their story gave a completely different perspective to what happened, as it wasn't about statistics or about a nation as a whole, but one person who lost his family and home." ~O. Avery (student)
Share Our Next Big Project With Your Friends!
UPDATE February 27: We've done it. With your help and with the help of your friends, families, and colleagues, we have reached and exceeded our goal of $36,717 to fund this project! This is incredible support from old friends and new friends from around the world! Thank YOU. But it's not over yet. We still have several days until the project expires. Let's keep the momentum up! Please contribute if you can and urge your friends to contribute and share this with their friends and family on Facebook, Twitter, and emails.
Today, January 27th, is International Holocaust Remembrance Day and we are honoring and remembering the victims, survivors, liberators, resistors and all of that were affected by the Holocaust. On this day we ask you to help carry on the testimonies and memories of our local Holocaust survivors, liberators and resistors by supporting our Kickstarter: "Creating Legacy Videos for Holocaust Survivors Now!"
The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center has taken on the task of creating a series of professional documentaries being filmed of all the survivors, liberators and resistors in the Philadelphia area. With this project we hope to ensure that long after our heroes pass away, that their stories are never forgotten.
The end result will be 20-45 minute documentaries for each of the survivors, liberators, and resistors that will be split up by person and subject matter and made available to educators, historians, family members, and the world on our website.
But we can't do this without your help. We ask you to donate to our cause AND spread the word to your family members, friends, colleagues, and social media friends by sharing the link to the Kickstarter webpage via word of mouth, Facebook, Twitter, and Email.
