WELCOME

"Children of the Holocaust" is the association of Holocaust survivors who at the outbreak of the Second World War were 13 years of age or younger, or were born during the war; who because of their Jewish origins were targeted for extermination by the Nazi occupiers, were incarcerated in ghettoes, concentration camps or death camps, or had to conceal their identity (Statutes of the Association, Chapter II, 12).

SHORT HISTORY
The first World Congress of Hidden Children was held in New York on May 26-27 1991. Soon thereafter we convoked a founding meeting of "Children of the Holocaust" in Poland. It opened on June 27, 1991, and was attended by 45 persons.
45 persons were present...

OUR FRIENDS
They are the ones who saved us, risking their own lives, something we should never forget. We try to take care of them, and we wonder how best to use their presence among us to educate young Polish people. We particularly cherish Mrs. Irena Sendlerowa who, helped by several others, rescued about 2500 children from the ghetto of Warsaw.
EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME
It is our moral obligation to those who perished, and our duty to the young generation and their future, to carry out educational programs telling the truth about the Holocaust.

OUR DONORS
the ones who help us to help others.
PSYCHOTHERAPY
Our members are dealing with the past as best they can; however, some just cannot cope. For these members we have created a special therapeutic program.

THE WRITING
To give testimony, to convey to others the truth about those terrible times is one of the purposes of our Association. Fortunately, some of us can write well. Also some other authors write about our experiences.
