When I was first introduced to the history of the Holocaust, I was 16 years old and it was part of my Temple Sunday school education. I knew a little about it before hand from my parents explaining what happened to surviving realitives I was meeting when I was youngster.
When I was 17, my Dad asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said a Nazi hunter or a psychologist. I could not get the Holocaust out of my mind.
I am 59 now. I have read hundreds of books, I have read fictional novels based on the Holocaust and survivors writen books. I have seen hundreds of films, documentries. I even have a Pinterest Board with 10,000 pictures as I want people to know and learn as it is practically blocked form education. I have been to the musuem in Israel and worked side by side with a few survivors who lived at the Kibbutz I worked on during the summers of 1972 and 73. I have volunteered at the museum in DC when it first opened. I have spoken to many suvivors. I have volunteered my services to a nonprofit in NYC that provides services to survivors who are now alone. I am working on colorizing holocaust b/w photos as I believe that if in color, it will have more inpact on todays youth to see and learn.
As of laste, I have been one of the Admins to block holocaust denier groups from Facebook. We collected over 10,000 signatures gathered from our petition, and in October sent to Facebook, who never bothered to reply. We do our best to get some of these pages off of Facebook. But Facebook rarely removes such hateful sites.
These interviews are so very important. They affect be deeply. I share them with others through social signals. I cherish each one of these heroes and what they say and have survived through. I cherish each of they lost heroes that did not survive. I am enslaved by the Holocaust and always looking for more answers, more undertanding. These testimonals are precious.
I will be 60 in February. I have one thing on my 'bucket list' that I have been trying to save up to do. That is to travel and visit Auschwitz and other concentration camps, as well the Warsaw ghetto district and such. One day, I will conqueer by fear of flying so I can fullfill this goal.
Keep these testimonials going. May we never, ever forget!
Thank you for all you do and to all who contribute their stories.
Keep up the great work and congrats on reaching this excellent milestone.
As a proud USC graduate, I am so inspired by the USCShoah Foundation. As a counselor at an all girls' high school I am thrilled to be able to share with faculty and students the amazing work the USCShoah Foundation does to educate all of us in the most powerful way possible, through story-telling. Thank you for providing these incredible resources.
Happy Anniversary Shoah Foundation and many many many more anniversaries to come. Your mission is very important. Collecting the fragements of the past, restructuring the history and the facts into a resource so that future generations learn and do not repeat the errors of their ancsetors.
Only by learning from the past can humans progress and avoid repeating it.

There is a saying: "Those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it". We need to study history to find out more about ourselves, to learn from our mistakes, and most importantly not to forget.
Daros la enhorabuena por manterner un portal como éste, ofertando material didáctico para que las generaciones venideras no olviden la barbarie de la Shoah.
My cousin Henry Changar has a testimony at the Shoah Foundation. I am grateful that these people live on in our hearts and memories after the atrocities they suffered. Never forget them!
