South Jersey Holocaust Survivors Project

The South Jersey Holocaust Survivors Project (SJHSP) is an initiative of the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center at Stockton University. The project aims to document the lives of Holocaust Survivors who settled in Atlantic, Cape May, and Cumberland Counties.

We have created a digital archive documenting the Survivors’ stories that can be accessed at the Holocaust Resource Center or by special arrangement. We have launched websites presenting brief life stories as well as profiles of South Jersey businesses owned and operated by local Holocaust survivors. The archives and the websites will continue to grow as more information and documents become available. In the future, the SJHSP will complete a digital exhibition about the Holocaust and the experiences of Survivors in our region. Other projects and events will follow, ensuring the legacy and the remembrance of Holocaust Survivors who lived in southern New Jersey and, in the process, enriched it immeasurably.
