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.
