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.

Our NextGen speaker Eli Bitan has shared his family’s Holocaust survival story with the NextGen Book Project Team earlier for the production of educational resource.
