As grandchildren of Holocaust survivors, 3GDC constitutes a living memorial
that preserves and honors the legacy of our grandparents through education,
advocacy, and community-building.
3GDC empowers third-generation survivors in our nation’s capital and the greater
Washington region by creating space to share our common experience and
elevating the voice of our unique constituency. We pledge to stand together
against anti-Semitism and hatred; never will we be bystanders in the face of
injustice. We will reflect the diversity of third-generation survivors, build
relationships with communal and educational institutions in our area, and welcome
the participation of all those who support our mission.
Ours is the bridge generation between the grandparents who helped raise and teach
us and the future generations who will only know them through our memories.
3GDC will ensure that the lessons of the Holocaust and its stories of heroism and
humanity will not only be passed down through books, art, or film but in the voices
and memories of those whose families forever bear living witness to history.
