    This study explored and described the process of survivor testimonial volunteering. The sample studied consisted of ten Holocaust survivors, who are involved in survivor testimony living in Los Angeles and surrounding communities. This study sought to attain an in-depth account of the testimony process, exploring feelings experienced, forms of testimony, people involved, main story points, and hoped outcomes. In addition, this study sought to investigate the relationship that giving testimony has with life review participation and coping abilities.This study found that survivor testimony has several benefits for survivors and those close to them. Results indicated that survivors who testify are coping well with age-related losses, feel encouraged and supported, and testify utilizing a variety of creative formats. Survivors who testify are a population that has suffered great losses, and are confronting additional losses in old age.Their testimony is a vehicle of expression and provides an opportunity for personal growth and purpose. Sharing similar hoped outcomes of their testimony, survivors who testify want their story to be told on the human level to make a positive difference in the world today.
