WELCOME TO 3GNJ

WHAT IS 3GNJ?
  • A newly formed group of NJ-based grandchildren of survivors of the Holocaust.
  • We believe that we are at a critical point in time with the number of survivors dwindling rapidly.
  • We are passionate about ensuring that our family members’ stories of survival are not lost or forgotten.
  • We want to use our voices to keep their stories alive by speaking to students and others.
  • By partnering with 3GNY, a successful third generation organization based in NYC, we offer speaker training to 3Gs in New Jersey so that they can confidently tell their stories to others.
  • We have connected with the New Jersey State Commission on Holocaust Education to find speaking opportunities.
  • We host meetings and dinners to network, socialize, hear from survivors, screen Holocaust related movies and reflect on our lives as 3Gs living in a world where anti-Semitism is again on the rise.
  • We are connecting with Holocaust Resource Centers at multiple New Jersey colleges and universities to host joint events.
  • Any questions or want to learn more? Check out our event on this site, email us at 3GNewJersey@gmail.com and check our Facebook page: 3GNJ – Grandchildren of Holocaust Survivors.

MOVIE NIGHT OPEN TO THE COMMUNITY

Tuesday, November 19 at 7 PM
Film: Who Will Write Our History

Please join 3GNJ, the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors, for our movie night with a Q & A to follow facilitated by Dr. Adara Goldberg, Director of Holocaust Resource Center at Kean University.

  • $5 per person. Dessert & Coffee will be provided.
  • Seating is limited and reservations are required.

The film begins in November 1940, days after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw ghetto, a secret band of journalists, scholars, and community leaders decides to fight back. Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, this clandestine group vows to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda, not with guns or fists but with pen and paper.

This event is co-sponsored by 3GNJ, JCC Holocaust Memorial and Education Center, and Kean University Holocaust Resource Center.
