"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)

Update - Legacy Project

The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center and Flim Films continue working on the Legacy Project. Gunter Hauer, a Holocaust survivor, commemorated Holocaust Remembrance Day on Monday, April 28th by sharing his testimony in front of the camera.

For the next few months we will be filming more of the Holocaust survivors we work with. It's not too late to donate! More donations for our Legacy Project ensures filming of more survivors.

Share Our Next Big Project With Your Friends!



Spread the Word!

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.
