Holocaust Survivors

‘My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.’

Psalm 119:50

The Second World War ended seventy-five years ago. But for most survivors the Holocaust (Shoah) never ended. The trauma that the survivors struggle with on a daily basis is amazingly deep. Many of their relatives were murdered during the war. To make matters worse, there was no understanding of their trauma after the war or people did not believe what had happened. Some survivors were unable to function normally because of the deep trauma, and ended up living in poverty. Until the present day, these survivors are living with the immense pain. ‘Why did this happen to me? Why did I survive this? Why?’ These are questions without answers. When the end of life draws near, the war trauma often comes to the surface. The survivors have come to age and will not be among us for long, and there is a growing demand for practical assistance.

Christians for Israel supports various projects in which assistance is provided to survivors of the Holocaust. This is perhaps one of the most practical and urgent opportunities to put the Biblical mandate of Isaiah 40:1 into practice.

Please help our Holocaust survivors. Any amount is welcome.
