Help for survivors
Solidarity toward Shoah survivors and those who suffered anti-Semitic persecution is one of the main priorities of the Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah. The Foundation finances specific programs established by social and medical institutions. These programs aim to meet the needs of Shoah survivors by offering specific services. The Foundation also works to reduce the isolation of survivors by supporting associations that offer them group activities and cultural events. Today, approximately 3,000 Shoah survivors may benefit from these specific services.
In Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia, a housing repair and renovation programme, initiated and supported by the British Jewish community, provides the most vulnerable members of local Jewish communities with a dignified and healthy home.
Proposing a project
In France, programs for survivors can be proposed by medical and social institutions (homecare or long-term care facility programs) or organizations (cultural activities and fighting the isolation of seniors). The Foundation also funds programs set up by charitable organizations to help survivors in Israel. For Europe, it has a partnership with the Joint Distribution Committee.
Due to the Covid-19 crisis, the deadline has been postponed to a still undetermined date.
