LIGHT OF OUR SURVIVORS

Honoring Their Light

Honoring Our Survivors

Light of Our Survivors honors Holocaust survivors, their descendants, and the 6 Million Jewish lives lost in the Holocaust.  An initiative of 6 Million Lights, its innovative light-making workshops foster conversation and community, as we gather together Holocaust Survivors, their descendants, and a diverse mix from the interfaith community.  We share stories, memories, and wisdom while creating beautiful illuminated paper lamps that serve as luminous reminders of each maker’s intention to share light with the world.

The mere presence and participation of Survivors strongly impacts workshop participants. 

As one participant shared, “Making lights alongside Survivors was a once in a lifetime experience for me.”

I want my lamp to say ‘welcome to all who pass this way’… to be a beacon in the darkness… to be a path light… to reflect unconditional love and acceptance.

J.A., descendant of Holocaust survivors

I appreciated how the stories of those who perished, those who survived and the impact on descendants – were told from many viewpoints.  My lamp is nice, but for me other parts of the workshop were even more meaningful! The symbolism of the lights is a strong feature.

 

 

 

M.O., a Holocaust Survivor

It was worth everything to have both survivors and descendants present and share their experience. The whole purpose was to honor the 6 million. We never lost sight of that.

Honoring Our Survivors

Light of Our Survivors honors Holocaust survivors, their descendants, and the 6 Million Jewish lives lost in the Holocaust.  An initiative of 6 Million Lights, its innovative light-making workshops foster conversation and community, as we gather together Holocaust Survivors, their descendants, and a diverse mix from the interfaith community.  We share stories, memories, and wisdom while creating beautiful illuminated paper lamps that serve as luminous reminders of each maker’s intention to share light with the world.  Raye David (Survivor of Auschwitz)[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title="Learn More" style="outline" shape="square" color="black" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Forlanu.org%2Fhonoring-their-light%2F|title:Honoring%20Their%20Light||" el_class="max-700" css=".vc_custom_1581979987924{padding-right: 30px !important;padding-left: 30px !important;}"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_section full_width="stretch_row" content_placement="top" css=".vc_custom_1580334664987{padding-top: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 30px !important;background-color: #f8df85 !important;}"][vc_row css=".vc_custom_1580335395427{padding-top: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 30px !important;}"][vc_column width="1/6"][/vc_column][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1581980188666{margin-top: 0px !important;margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}"]

The mere presence and participation of Survivors strongly impacts workshop participants. 

As one participant shared, “Making lights alongside Survivors was a once in a lifetime experience for me.”

So creative and meaningful. It is good to have a concrete symbol. I didn’t really understand that untill I placed my light in my living room. I love being in the room with that light! It reminds me of my parents, hope and how important stories are.

Honoring Our Survivors

Light of Our Survivors honors Holocaust survivors, their descendants, and the 6 Million Jewish lives lost in the Holocaust.  An initiative of 6 Million Lights, its innovative light-making workshops foster conversation and community, as we gather together Holocaust Survivors, their descendants, and a diverse mix from the interfaith community.  We share stories, memories, and wisdom while creating beautiful illuminated paper lamps that serve as luminous reminders of each maker’s intention to share light with the world.  Raye David (Survivor of Auschwitz)[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title="Learn More" style="outline" shape="square" color="black" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Forlanu.org%2Fhonoring-their-light%2F|title:Honoring%20Their%20Light||" el_class="max-700" css=".vc_custom_1581979987924{padding-right: 30px !important;padding-left: 30px !important;}"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_section full_width="stretch_row" content_placement="top" css=".vc_custom_1580334664987{padding-top: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 30px !important;background-color: #f8df85 !important;}"][vc_row css=".vc_custom_1580335395427{padding-top: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 30px !important;}"][vc_column width="1/6"][/vc_column][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1581980188666{margin-top: 0px !important;margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}"]

M.S., an attorney who participated in the very first "Light of Our Survivors" workshop

Because of this workshop I finally was emotionally ready to obtain my parents’ video (thank you – S. Spielberg), where they shared the story of their lives in Europe and what happened to them and their family during the holocaust.
