With an average age of 83, and currently dying one every 30 minutes, we will lose them and their history at the rate of 48 every day. In the next 12 months over 17,500 Survivors will die. Each year following, as they age, the rate of loss will increase.
If we project the number Approximately doubling each year due to age and ill health, we can expect them to be almost completely gone in approximately ten years.
At that point, Holocaust history will no longer have any eye witnesses. Who will refute the Holocaust deniers then?
It is up to us to be the “new Survivors” and carry on their war accounts. Help us keep their stories alive!
