In Albuquerque, New Mexico, as in many other cities across the United States, there is a community of Holocaust survivors.
They come together for gatherings of Cafe Europa, to celebrate Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), or to help others
in their group who are in need.
Each person has stories to tell--whether they were camp survivors or hidden children; whether they got out before
the war or, during the war, were able to go to another country--they eventually made it to the United States, and, eventually,
The survivors are living history. We want to preserve their stories for posterity. Hopefully, their tales
and examples will help those who were not involved in this traumatic time to understand what this part of history entailed,
as well as provide lessons in combating stereotyping, prejudice, and racism in modern times.
