In remote areas of Eastern Europe and Ukraine, elderly Holocaust survivors in
desperate need of food, medicine, suitable shelter, and lovingkindness, have, received direct financial aid from the Survivor Mitzvah Project. Now its founder, television comedy director Zane Buzby, is completing SMP’s Holocaust Educational Archives, making available hundreds of hours of never-before-recorded videography and documentation of first-person Holocaust testimony from local witnesses, rescuers and survivors. Thousands of letters of Holocaust testimonies and life histories and with photographs, will be part of a dynamic approach to teaching about the Holocaust. It’s part of an important dialogue on justice, tolerance for cultural differences, and appreciation of commonality.
