Writing Partners

Our volunteer writing partners are people of different ages, life stages and religious, cultural and education backgrounds. They share the desire to learn more about the Holocaust and support survivors in telling their stories in the manner that was meaningful to them.

Survivor: Paula Goldhar

Meeting and working with Paula Goldhar on the Sustaining Memories project was a life-altering experience for me. As she so aptly quoted Elie Wiesel, “When you listen to a witness, you become a witness.” Indeed, Paula’s memories and her triumph of survival are etched on my soul. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to engage in a healing way with a Holocaust survivor. The training and support provided by the gifted staff of the Azrieli Foundation was thorough and demonstrated much sensitivity to the needs of both the survivors and their writing partners.
