    Event History
    A sense of duty and obligation to share experiences and memories is real and present for many Holocaust survivors. Relatively few, however, have an opportunity to share and many are not comfortable speaking publicly. The Memory Project provides survivors another outlet through which to share their memories. These writing workshops guide the survivor participants in the production of a document for their family members, as well as for historical archives. They are empowered to speak on their own terms. This is one more way the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum helps survivors to share their memories and add significantly to Holocaust remembrance. The Memory Project is based on the "Leave-A-Legacy" Writing Workshops developed by the Drew University Center for Holocaust/Genocide Study, to whom we are grateful for training and guidance provided in establishing this important program.
