Mission Statement

We represent the European Jewish Survivors of the Holocaust. During the Nazi period, we were persecuted and being forced to live in Ghettos, in Camps and in Hiding.

Some of us were also on the run, all over Europe, trying to escape from Nazi persecution.

Our goal is to represent the interests of all Jewish Survivors now living in Europe.

We shall support each other, and shall keep alive the memory of the six million Jews murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators.

We shall pass on our legacy to future generations.

We shall fight anti-Semitism.
