The Survivor Mitzvah Project (SMP) mission is an urgent humanitarian effort bringing direct and continuous financial aid to elderly and forgotten Holocaust who are ill isolated, alone and in desperate need of food, medicine, heat, shelter and some loving kindness.

100% of every dollar raised goes directly into the hands of a Holocaust Survivor in need.

The Survivor Mitzvah Project’s mission is to ensure that no Holocaust survivor who has experienced the darkest days of human history will ever suffer again or be hungry, neglected or forgotten.

The Survivor Mitzvah Project’s Holocaust Educational Archive is our secondary mission.

This Holocaust Archive is most extensive collection of materials of the Holocaust in the East, which represents 2.7 million of the 6 million who perished. It is a unique repository of over 500 of hours of never before recorded videography and documentation of first-person Holocaust testimony from the survivors, local witnesses, and rescuers across 9 countries in Eastern Europe.

SMP’s Holocaust Educational Archive reflects The Survivor Mitzvah Project’s efforts to bring this history alive creating a dynamic, new, contemporary way to teach the Holocaust to current and future generations, in sync with the digital age.

The Survivor Mitzvah Project’s Holocaust Educational Archive will have an impact far into the future, contributing to an important dialogue on justice, tolerance for cultural differences, an appreciation of human commonality and a warning to confront evil wherever it takes hold.

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. holocaust survivor
