HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS’ SPEAKER BUREAU
A Holocaust Survivors’ Speaker Bureau has been established to assist interested groups in scheduling Holocaust survivors to speak to their audiences. The purpose of the Speaker Bureau is to provide school, church, civic, military, municipal, and professional groups with the memorable and moving opportunity of listening to a Holocaust survivor tell their personal story of sorrow, loss, and survival. Listed below are the names and a brief biography of the speakers currently available.
