I am in the project “Memory. Help. Generations.” from the moment of its basis, that is already soon 4 years. The most interesting thing to me is the fact that we adjoin to live history and we can bring the real results. Sheets and a photos  which we collect, letters of thanks to the volunteers from “Yad Vashem” – all this allows to see that our work is not in vain. And the most important – is my team. It is very interesting to me to work with the volunteers and with the coordinators, they – are my inspiration and incentive to work more and more productively! There is a wish to expand the project to the other cities and to communicate to all elderly people in Moscow, data of whom we have.

I am 28 years old, I have graduated RGSU in “Sociology”, a year I have studied in Jerusalem in “Machon Meir” within the program MASA. I have two children. In the project “Memory. Help. Generations” I am from its basis. In 4 months from the participant I have passed into the  coordinators of the volunteers. Now I am, mainly, engaged in the processing of the incoming calls from elderly people. Thanks to the project, I can do something socially significant, often without leaving the house that for me, as a mother of two small children, is very important. During my work in the project I have got acquainted with remarkable people: as volunteers, and those from whom I collect the  information about the dead relatives, for further transfer to the museum “Yad Vashem”, I have learned a set of interesting stories of life, I have tried to help to those people with something whom I face on the work in the project, together with the other volunteers.

I am 26 years old, at the moment I am the student of the second higher education in the HAZE and the private teacher of English. Actively, I participate in the project since June, 2015. The Holocaust phenomenon was always interesting for me, and the stories which we learn from our respondents are very interesting too. We do that only thing that we can make for the died Jews 75 years later after Shoa – to hold in remembrance their stories until they have consigned to the past at all. At the present moment, in the project we want to expand our geography: to find the activists in other cities of Russia and the Post-Soviet countries to capture as many as possible respondents.

The volunteer of the project “Assistance. Memory. Generations”, Inna Marcinkovskaya: ” My mom gave me a plain white envelope that came by the mail. Beneficiary — Me, the sender — Yad Vashem. Inside there is a letter stating that my great-grandfather’s name will be mentioned in the Hall of Remembrance…. I looked at the sheet of paper and realized that it is the most important thing that I have done in my life… I have made a long way in order to know something about my ancestors… I was going onto a journey into the dreams of folksy cottages, and on my way I found mass graves and memorial sign boards the same that I have on my chest. And at the next stop — at Yad Vashem I have found the certificate of my great-grandmother, who had escaped from the ghetto at night before its inhabitants — the good and the bad, old and small, were killed … My great-grandmother recalled in her certificate that my great-grandfather Samuel Horosh was shot on the outskirts of the city, near the wall of the brick plant. The policeman, from Velizha at the trial, said: “we have our hands to the elbow in the blood …”. Nothing will wash away this blood… But I returned to my great-grandfather his NAME and the memory to myself. This is the most important thing that I have done in my life… “
