Welcome letter from WFJHS&D President, Child Survivor Stefanie Seltzer

Dear friends,
     We are thrilled to announce that our 2023 Annual Conference will take place in Washington, D.C. at the Omni Shoreham Hotel on August 25-28, 2023. We are looking forward to hugging – sharing with one another – and let’s not forget the dancing together again!! 
     We will continue to hold some virtual gatherings on “zoom” during the coming months to provide our community of Survivors and Descendants the opportunity to come together and stay connected until we can meet in person again. For the time being we look forward to “virtually“  seeing you on “zoom” –  Hearing from interesting speakers – and holding discussion groups on topics of interest to us. 
     Please take good care – stay well – and don’t forget to be good to yourselves!!!

Stephanie Seltzer, President
World Federation of Jewish Holocaust Survivors & Descendants
