HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, APRIL 10, 2009 Before Our Eyes issuccessful pr,)j, :: A Holocaust remembrance project, Before Our Eyes, where survivors are encour- aged to tell their personal stories to the younger gen- eration, is supported by the Jewish community of Orlando within the framework of Part- nership 2000. The goal of the project is to deepen connections among Holocaust survivors and second- and third-generation residents of Kiryat Motzkin in Israel and visiting adults and teens from Orlando. As Holocaust survivors deliver their .personal testi- monies, the complexity of handing down their stories to future generations is re- vealed. This is expressed in the difficulty survivors had in internalizing events as they happened, and the difficul- ties that come later--when survivors attempt to tell their stories to people with no first-hand experience of the types of experiences they went through.
