About Organization

The All-Israeli Association of Concentration Camps and Ghetto Survivors was set up in 1992 as an independent, non-commercia and a non-party public orgarization.

The Association is one of the biggest and most respected Russian public organizations in Israel. It has united Jews, who survived in the fires of Holocaust by miracle, in Ghettos, extermination camps at the territory of the USSR and Eastern Europe, occupied by the fascist Germany and its satellites.

The man aims of the Association are to protect rights and interests of former prisoners of Nazism, to preserve memory about Holocaust victims and Jevvish resistance, to establish constructive relations with foregn organizations. First of all, with the organizations of Evangelical Christians, who support Israel and Jewish people in their struggle against manifestations of anti-Semitism and neo-Nazism.
The Association is linked to Rigtteous Among the Nations and their families, and aso to those, who helped Jews to survive during the occupaion period.

Festival of supporting Israel

The last years proved that one of the main events in the life of the Association was the decision to set up town organizations, members of the Association. Exactly these town organizations are the basis of the Association, its stem and motive force, which solves the problems of the survivors promptly. At present there are 33 town organization, members of the Association, and they are led by councils, elected by the meeting. Association enlists about 3000 survivors. The current management is executed by the Central council, which elects a chairman, deputies chairman and the Bureau members.

The Association is proud of its achievements.
The management of the Association and of the town organizations has defined the care of people as its main target, care of those people who lost their relatives and dose people, survived loss of loved ones, humiliation and diseases during the years of occupation, and afterward they experienced state anti-Semitism and policy of multi-year silence on tragedy of Holocaust. In 2008 the management of the Association took part in the State commission on negotiations with the Government of Israel to allocate exemption to former prisoners of ghettos and concentration camps. As a result the Law On Exemptions to Needy Survivors was passed.

Councils of town organizations plan their activities in such
a way, that it's possible to take into consideration the interests of the prisoners as cbsely as possible. They do home visits or visits in the hospitals of those who are sick, or bedridden, they buy food packages, with the help of sponsors they help to pay for the expensive drugs, which are not included into the basket of medical services, they try to organize leisure time, or to celebrate together Jewish holidays, to congratulate those who have birthday or jubilees, they publish books of reminiscences, as well as organize other interesting and useful events.
