Abstract

The purpose of this research is to highlight the mistreatment of Holocaust survivors after World War II. By examining survivor testimonies, programs created for survivors, and current media on relief, it becomes clear that humanity has failed to complete its obligation to the victims of the Holocaust. By shattering preconceived notions about post-war treatment of survivors, this research will highlights causes that led to the inadequate conditions currently faced by survivors. From this, we can evaluate where we went wrong in the past, and make changes starting today, to increase the quality of life for those effected by the Holocaust.
