Many survivors live in poverty, it’s estimated some 40% of Holocaust survivors in New York City live below the poverty line. (For more information on how you can help click here.)
It’s been a tough year for many, but there is reason to feel joy. As the vaccine rolls out, many survivors are being vaccinated and family and friends are turning to social media to celebrate.
