In Their Own Words is the extraordinary story of The Survivor Mitzvah Project and the urgent grass roots effort to help the last survivors of the Holocaust in Eastern Europe.
Award winning actors from stage, screen and Broadway lend their talents by reading Holocaust testimonies and letters the survivors we are helping have written to us. These materials are all a part of our growing SMP Holocaust Educational Archive. These compelling, heart breaking stories, have been performed by Ed Asner, Paul Ben Victor, Frances Fisher, Elliott Gould, Lainie Kazan, Chris Noth, Alan Rosenberg, General Consul of Israel David Siegel, and Milo Ventimiglia, to name just a few.
These readings give a contemporary voice to these remarkable, elderly individuals who have lived through the darkest days of the history and share their wisdom, insight, and hopes for a brighter future for all mankind.
