Safekeeping Stories of the Holocaust Workshop

For first timers to Storykeeping.

This Workshop is designed specifically for family members of Holocaust survivors.

Learn the essentials of Storykeeping and capture key events in your family member’s pre-war, wartime, and post-liberation life, as well as your own insights and reflections. You’ll write in small segments we call Slices, which come together to form a story. No special writing skills are required.

A free membership to the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center  ($100 value) is included with workshop registration to provide additional resources for exploring your family’s story!
