Survivor Stories

The Butterfly Project is honored to share these courageous stories from some of San Diego’s local Holocaust survivor community. These stories contain messages of hope, highlight the power of one person to make a difference, and show us the possibility for transformation after unimaginable tragedy. These survivors share these stories here as way for all students to have access to this remarkable oral history.
