About the WFJHS&D

We are those who were children during the Holocaust, We were persecuted during the Nazi era in ghettos, in concentration camps, in hiding, on the run or were forced to leave Nazi-occupied Europe. We are also the Next Generations, Descendants of Survivors of the Holocaust. Together, our objectives are to represent the interests of the child survivor community and to support each other, to keep alive the memory of the six million Jews – including the 1.5 million children – murdered during the Holocaust, and to pass our legacy to future generations.

Max Arpels Lezer, President
