Survivors from Southern Arizona have written autobiographical stories, now captured in a compelling new book. Click here to read more about the project and the featured Survivors.
This program is a focal point for Survivors living in Southern Arizona.
We appreciate the opportunity to provide support for the many local Holocaust Survivors we have served since the Claims Conference-funded program started in Tucson in 1998. We continue to assist the many Survivors living in our community.
