WITH THE ALARMING RAISE IN HOLOCAUST DENIAL IN THE UNITED STATES, INCLUDING ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES, this project was created by SSI’s founders in loving memory of their family members, Isaac Estis, a Jewish soldier during WWII, his wife Lia, who raised two Jewish kids alone during evacuation and starvation, and Leonid Ostrovsky, who was among the only 9 surviving of the 300 revolted escaping the Babi Yar massacre.
THEIR STORIES CANNOT BE DENIED.
In memory of all the relatives, grandparents, mothers, fathers, siblings, friends, and communities whose names are remembered in places such as Yad Vashem, but there are no living remained to remember them but us, through our duty to preserve their stories, as with each passing year there are less and less survivors and witnesses who can do it.
These stories, the history of the Holocaust, cannot be denied.
WE WILL NOT LET THIS HAPPEN.
The “UNDENIED” project is a unique Holocaust memorial and awareness initiative where during International Holocaust Remembrance Day Students Supporting Israel chapters and activists hand out free books on the Holocaust on college campuses across North America.
