Today, January 27, marks the United Nations’s International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Around the world, JDC works in communities that were ravaged by the Holocaust. Many of our JDC Jewish Service Corps (JSC) Fellows interact with survivors on a daily basis, and the memories of this terrible time remain strong in the cities where we operate in Europe and the Former Soviet Union.

To commemorate International Holocaust Rememberence Day, we pulled together blog posts from our current JSC Fellows that look at survivors and memorials around the world.

Applications for the 2012-13 JDC Jewish Service Corps are open until March 15. More at jdc.org/jsc
