Generations of the Shoah - Nevada

Generations of the Shoah – Nevada (GS-N) was established in Las Vegas, Nevada in October 2010 as a group for the children and grandchildren of Holocaust (Shoah) survivors. GS-N supports local Holocaust survivors, educates community members about the history of the Holocaust, and works to ensure that the legacy of the Holocaust is not "forgotten, denied, or re-written." The group collaborates with Yad Vashem to help with the Pages of Testimony project, an effort to record the names of the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust. GS-N provides a place for members to discuss their personal experiences as children of survivors. It also provides online forums, book discussions, and programs such as writing workshops and speaker training workshops.
