Yad Vashem and Pages of Testimony
Our JGSPBCI program is off to a good start. "P.O.T.s" are starting to come
in. Volunteers are recruiting other volunteers and several organizations
have been contacted and are joining our JGSBPC in recording Pages of
Testimony >from families and friends.

To date, only a little more than half of the six million Holocaust victims
have been recorded in the Names Database and time is
running out as survivors pass on and memories of friends and relatives fade.

"Pages of Testimony" (only one page is needed per victim) will be available
at our September 13th meeting. Volunteers will be provided for anyone who
needs assistance in filing a P.O.T.
For further information or to sign up as a volunteer, contact:
Sandra and Donald Hirschhorn
