Our Primary Mission is to alleviate the hunger, poverty, and suffering of Holocaust survivors.
Our Secondary Mission is Holocaust Education.
The Survivor Mitzvah Project’s Holocaust Educational Archive is the only one of its kind in the world, focusing on the Holocaust in the East – the untold story of the Holocaust in Eastern Europe.
Over 500 hours of video and tens of thousands of photographs and handwritten testimonies tell the never before told story of the 2.7 million Jewish men, women, and children who died in the Holocaust in the East (nearly half of the 6 million who were killed) and the unimaginable and heroic experiences of those who survived.
These extraordinary stories of heroism and betrayal, love and loss, life and death, will have an impact on Holocaust Education far into the future.
The Survivor Mitzvah Project’s Holocaust Educational Archive contributes to an important dialogue on social justice, tolerance for cultural differences, an appreciation of human commonality, and a warning to confront evil wherever it takes hold.
