Descendants of Holocaust Survivors in Central Texas

We are a group of children (2nd Generation) and grandchildren (3rd Generation) of Holocaust survivors, as well as survivors themselves, living in Austin and Central Texas. We offer a forum for sharing related information and events, as well as a place to share thoughts, feelings, and ideas around our Holocaust legacy. Our goal is to honor our parents and grandparents and ensure that what they experienced will not be forgotten.
