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!

What People Are Saying

As a direct result of completing the workshop, I have now embarked on a path of dedicated Holocaust education which includes telling my parent’s story in schools, synagogues and to civic groups, as well as continuing to write more family stories.

Participating in the Safekeeping Stories Workshop has been one of the most meaningful, formative experiences I have ever had. Through writing and sharing my father’s Holocaust story I learned that it is also my story, and that it continually effects my family’s actions and responses.

My parents were both Holocaust survivors… I’m thankful to Jill and her Safekeeping Stories Workshop program for allowing me to do my part in the mission to ensure the world never forgets what my parents survived.

These workshops have been extremely helpful to our organization. I’m grateful to Jill and Safekeeping Stories for helping the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center continue its mission.

I can’t thank you enough for all I’ve gotten from the Safekeeping Stories Workshop. It provided just the right combination of structure, encouragement, gentle coaching, and opportunities to share with our group.

Safekeeping Your Parent’s Stories

For first timers to Storykeeping.

Their stories are your stories, whether they are still with you or not. In this Workshop you’ll capture some essential stories of one of your parents while learning the Fundamentals of Storykeeping. Walk away with 3 Slices and the know-how to Craft as many Slices as you like.
