Never Heard Never Forget

Volunteer Opportunity to Work with Holocaust Testimonies!

Holocaust Community Services is working on the second edition of our book “Never Heard Never Forget,” a collection of Holocaust survivor accounts from the former Soviet Union living in Metropolitan Chicago. We have about 60 stories that need to be typed in Russian or English, and translated from English to Russian as well as from Russian to English.

If you or anyone in your network speaks, reads, and writes in professional Russian, does not use Google to translate, and would be interested in working with Holocaust testimonies and researching historic names, places, and eventsplease email or

Our local Chicago survivors from the former Soviet Union are some of the last Holocaust witnesses and it is crucial we take their testimonies. We would love your help in moving forward with the process. Thank you so much!
