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:  Sally Koffman

As a writing partner for Sustaining Memories, I dedicated my work to my husband’s family members, those who survived and those who perished. I felt it was my duty to transcribe the oral stories I heard as survivors told me of what they lived through. Trying to put it all into words was difficult for the survivors, a near-impossible task that I knew would otherwise never be complete, and I was humbled and honoured to be a writing partner in this project. Thank you to the Azrieli Foundation for providing me with this opportunity.
