May 20, 2007 This was our first event to include three generations: Holocaust survivors, their children and grandchildren. The JCC’s Beit Midrash was filled to capacity as 3GNY’s Daniel Brooks and Leora Klein spoke to the gathering about the group’s beginnings, its mission, accomplishments and future. A PowerPoint presentation helped provide a vivid picture of our community’s first two years.
Following the presentation, a Q&A led to the emotional testaments of several Holocaust survivors expressing their gratitude and pride in the activism of this generation. Their sentiments were returned by the grandchildren, who expressed appreciation at having been inspired by their grandparents’ stories of courage and hope.
