About the South Jersey Holocaust Survivors Project
Please join us to tell the stories of our South Jersey Holocaust Survivors!
Dear Generations after the Shoah, whose parents, grandparents, or great-grandparents
were Holocaust Survivors (and other friends),
We are pleased to inform you that the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center
at Stockton University is embarking on a project to create an archive and permanent
exhibition documenting the Holocaust Survivors who settled in our communities in Atlantic,
Cape May, and Cumberland Counties.
Our goal is to have a computer station and large display screen in the Holocaust Resource
Center where students, faculty, family members, and others in the community can gain
information about our Holocaust Survivors who lived in Southern New Jersey. As the
years go on, this will become a valuable resource, not only for educational purposes,
but also for future generations to learn about their ancestors, l’dor v’dor – from
generation to generation.
We expect the project to take about three years to complete; however, we hope to have
portions available as early as late summer 2020. The research and work will be done
by Stockton students under the direction of the staff of the Sara and Sam Schoffer
Holocaust Resource Center and Holocaust and Genocide Studies faculty.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! Only you can provide us with information to document your families. We are the last
generation that has had personal relationships with the survivors. It is our duty
to preserve, record, and tell their life stories, for both today’s and future generations.
Please see our contribution form for more information about what material we are collecting and how we will do it.
