Organiser Generation 2 Generation

Organiser of G2G Presents: Surviving is Thriving - Lessons From Rwanda

We empower 2nd and 3rd generation descendants of Holocaust survivors to present their family histories to a wide variety of audiences, so that the Holocaust is not forgotten or denied. We aim to encourage empathy and understanding of others and thereby challenge racisim and discrimination.

  • To achieve this goal, we provide schools, religious, community and civic institutions with speakers who have a personal connection with Holocaust survivors. We train our speakers to deliver engaging and age appropriate presentations to a variety of audiences, using survivor testimony, artefacts and audio visual tools.

G2G Presents holds monthly events, inviting interested parties to hear our speakers deliver their carefully prepared family stories, or current issues of the day.
