From January 1 to January 31, 2019, Volunteer Community held a series of meetings with former ghetto and concentration camp prisoners as a part of the Holocaust Memorial Day project. Volunteers visited the wards, who were not able to leave home, brought them food and spend time together. During the meetings, volunteers visited 30 former prisoners.
Never forget about those who survived the war and genocide – this is the main rule of each of us. Unfortunately, many of these people are not able to move freely and attend events because of their age and state of health. So, in January, our students visited former prisoners of the ghetto and concentration camps, who for many reasons could not leave home. Our volunteers came to talk with the wards and provide any help, brought them food, sweets and, of course, a good mood.
They talked about many things: modern realities and their hometown, art and politics. In addition, the “golden age” wards shared their memories. Many of them thanked our organization. Our wards are grateful that young people remember and help them.
These people show us once again: despite the difficulties, you need to move forward, develop yourself and enjoy every moment of life!
