Making a difference with visitations. Holocaust survivors in most cases are lonely and as such need someone to visit them, listen to them share their memories from the war. Through visitations, we touch their hearts in a special way as well as make them feel that they are not forgotten.
In many cases Holocaust survivors wants to share their story as Holocaust survivor which means in many cases they want to tell their story from small child to WW2 untill present day.Most of all they want to share their war time story with somebody which is not their love one.Their stories are for many of them so hard to tell that they dont want to talk about those difficult memories with their love ones.Volunteers all over the world are great help in this matter.You can listen their hard life story and you can show support to them and confort them.Most of the visitings have become friendship between volunteers and Holocaust survivors.Next time when you meet them they are not strangers they are your friends to visit.
