Survivor Testimonies


The Holocaust Resource Center of Buffalo offers speakers on the Holocaust for the classroom and auditorium setting. The only requirement for a speaker visit is that the students are sufficiently prepared and understand the background of the Holocaust 1933-1945 and how it affected the lives of the men and women who were its victims.

If you are interested in scheduling a speaker for your school or institution, please submit the request for a specific date and time in writing as early as possible, or send an e-mail to


Bear in mind that our speakers will generally only go out to communities within a half-hour's drive of the metro Buffalo area. If it is not possible for a survivor to come to your location, consider using some of the online materials we have prepared on our Speakers Bureau members. Videotapes of oral testimony by these individuals can also be made available on request.
