Holocaust Survivors '45 AID SOCIETY | Second Generation

The Second Generation are the children and grand-children of Holocaust survivors (the ‘45 Aid Society). Our parents survived the ghettos and concentration camps or were in hiding in Nazi-occupied Europe during the Second World War.

After the war, a particular group of young survivors left eastern Europe together to start new lives. Many eventually settled in the UK, others in North America, Australia and Israel. They have retained strong contacts and are known collectively as the 45 Aid Society ‘The Boys’.

This website was set up by their children, to tell their story and maintain their legacy.
