It takes more than one generation to tell this story.
The Safekeeping Stories of the Holocaust Workshop is a practical, supportive, and structured approach to exploring, preserving, and sharing family Holocaust stories using the Storykeeping® method. Children, grandchildren, and other family members of Survivors are guided to create, step-by-step, the family’s prewar, wartime, and postwar story.
You will learn how to:
• Create your story using our practical and effective “Slice” system
• Connect the generations as you piece together their prewar story
• Relay your family member’s wartime experiences
• Identify character strengths that run in your family
• Capture the life your Survivor-family member built after the war
• Establish an archive to pass along key family facts
Space will be limited and participants interested in the workshop will be asked to complete an online application, available December 1-18, 2022. Materials include a Storykeeping Guide and weekly video instruction. Participants should plan to spend 2-3 hours per week to get the most out of the class.

Jill’s father-inlaw was a Holocaust survivor and helping him tell his story was her first and most meaningful project.
