Holocaust Memorial Day 2019 Postcard Project

The Postcard Project for Holocaust Memorial Day 2019 explores the theme: Torn from home. By taking part in the project you will learn the life stories of survivors who were forced to flee their homes during the Holocaust and the Genocide in Cambodia, and write a message to them.  

Groups and individuals can receive a reply message from these survivors by completing the form included in the resources below.

Holocaust Memorial Day 2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the end of the Genocide in Cambodia.
