Currently, HKHTC is engaging members of our local Jewish community to record and share their family histories of survival and persecution during the Shoah.

This is the hallmark of our ‘Next Generation’ project which seeks to involve the second and third generation of Holocaust survivors in broader educational activities in Hong Kong. Given the challenge of arranging in-person visits by survivors – which we are looking forward to resume – this form of experiencing eyewitness accounts is a powerful pedagogical tool.

This school year, our NextGen speaker Andrea Fessler has spoken to students at Christian Alliance International School as well as the RTHK audience about her family story in the Shanghai Ghetto. For more about the survival story of Andrea’s family, please click here.
