Celebration of Donation of Transcending Trauma Project Archive to Yad Vashem in Jerusalem

On April 30, 2017, supporters of Council’s Transcending Trauma Project celebrated the donation of the Phil Wachs and Juliet Spitzer Archive of Life Histories to Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, Israel. The donation of the archive was made possible by the generosity of Dr. Julie Meranze Levitt and Dr. Jerry D. Levitt.  In addition to the donors who made the collection of the Archive and its digitization possible, interviewers and others involved in the project gathered at the Wachs/Spitzer home to acknowledge the significance of it being held for posterity in The World Holocaust Remembrance Center.
