3 Generations' 75th Anniversary Commemoration Initiative

The Holocaust is fading from living memory. Recent reports indicate that a majority of young adults in the US do not know that the Nazis killed 6 million Jews. To combat this disturbing trend, 3 Generations is commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camps with an initiative inspired by the documentary film German Concentration Camps Factual Survey(GCCFS). It will launch with a Livestream on October 20th, hosted by Roger Cohen, columnist from The New York Times. A Video Contest designed to engage young people in educating their peers will roll out on social media in the coming months. And we will ask donors to sponsor screenings of GCCFS in colleges and communities.

Livestream Conversation

Our commemoration will launch with a livestream conversation hosted by The New York Times columnist Roger Cohen. Joining him will be Clara Citron, a junior at NYU and the granddaughter of three Holocaust survivors, Stephen Smith, Finci-Viterbi Executive Director of USC Shoah Foundation, UNESCO Chair on Genocide Education, Lina Srivastava, Founder, CIEL | Creative Impact & Experience Lab, and Jane Wells from 3 Generations.
