The story of the survivor bracelet

The survivor bracelet is a limited edition signature piece, created by
Beverly Hills luxury jewelry designer Dominique Cohen in support of the
lifesaving work of 
The Survivor Mitzvah Project.

The Survivor Mitzvah Project is an urgent humanitarian effort providing
emergency aid to
elderly and impoverished Holocaust Survivors in Eastern Europe
who are in critical need of food, medicine, heat and shelter.

Made exclusively for The Survivor Mitzvah Project, the survivor bracelet symbolizes the ideal of harmonious coexistence between all peoples, inspiring the wearer to take part in a continuous dialogue between the lessons of the past and the promise of the future.

“It was a labor of love,” says Dominique Cohen, “knowing the funds raised will help sustain and savethe lives of Holocaust survivors. We could not prevent the Holocaust, but we can make sure that the last survivors are not forgotten.”

The survivor bracelet blends the symbolic language of traditional Eastern European textiles with elegant modern design. The two diamond accents illuminate the triumph of good over evil through the power of compassion.

Each bracelet has been hand finished by the artist, aged and distressed to create a unique look, representing the litany of hardships the survivors have endured.

Each survivor bracelet is engraved with the name of the Holocaust Survivor helped through your generosity. No two bracelets have the same name.

In the spirit of MIA bracelets worn in solidarity with soldiers missing in action during the Vietnam War, the survivor bracelet is worn in solidarity with the Holocaust’s forgotten heroes – the last survivors.

“Many of these brave men and women are the sole survivors of their families, fought as teenage Partisans in the forests of Lithuania and Belarus, or escaped mass killings to survive the darkest days of human history. Now they are ill, isolated, and in urgent need. We thank Dominique Cohen and all who generously support The Survivor Mitzvah Project. Together we can write a more hopeful final chapter to the Holocaust, one of kindness and compassion.”  — CNN HERO Zane Buzby, Founder, The Survivor Mitzvah Project
