“And I Will Tell My Grandson”

“And I Will Tell My Grandson”

In 2009, with the support of Yad Vashem National Remembrance Authority and the Ashdod Absorption Center, the Aish David Ashdod community of Russian-speaking Israelis launched a project under the name of “And I Will Tell My Grandson”.

Participants included teenagers between 14 and 18 years of age, IDF soldiers and Holocaust survivors. The project provided opportunities for inter-generational dialogue about the Shoah, joint viewings of feature and documentary Holocaust films, visits to memorial sites across Israel, meetings with the WWII veterans who founded the Ashdod Museum of Holocaust and Heroism, filming of a documentary and interviews with Holocaust survivors.
