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.

Mc Keague final

Inspired to overcome any adversity.

I was honoured and privileged to have been a writing partner with Sustaining Memories. The strength and resilience of the Holocaust survivors with whom I worked had a profound effect. Their memories were disturbing and moving. I gained a new appreciation of the power of faith, the motivation of hope and the importance of family. In the words of one of the survivors, this was my mitzvah. 

I sincerely hope that in some small way assisting the survivors in telling their heart wrenching yet hopeful stories contributes to preserving the history of these “darkest of dark” times.

I am grateful to the survivors and the Azrieli Foundation for selecting me to work on this remarkable project.
