Mission Statement

The Survivor Mitzvah Project is dedicated to providing direct and continuous financial aid to those elderly and forgotten Jewish Holocaust Survivors scattered throughout Eastern Europe who are sick, impoverished, isolated and receive no direct financial aid from any other agency. Their families and communities destroyed by the Nazis, they struggle to survive in their few remaining years, lacking the means to buy even the most basic of human necessities: food, medicine, heat and shelter. Most live alone in harsh conditions. Our project, by bringing help quickly and directly to these survivors, helps ensure that they may live out their last years with some measure of comfort, support and dignity.

They are the last generation of Holocaust Survivors and we are the last generation who can help.

Be a part of the greatest rescue operation of the 21st Century.

Who saves one life, saves the world entire.

Become a Rescuer

These elderly survivors, who have endured the darkest days of history and the worst that humanity has to offer, now give us the chance to be the best of who we are as a people.

I ask you personally to become a rescuer and participate in this urgent humanitarian effort to help the last Survivors of the Holocaust in Eastern Europe.

Together we can write a more hopeful final chapter to the Holocaust…one of friendship, love & kindness.   – Zane Buzby
