Assemblyman Williams Seeks Holocaust Survivors, Liberators and Students for Project

Interviews will be included in a statewide memorial video project

Assemblyman Das Williams is looking for survivors of the Holocaust or veterans who participated in the liberation of concentration camps who now live locally, to tell their stories as part of the California State Assembly Holocaust Memorial Project.

Williams is also looking for local high school and college students who are interested in learning more about the Holocaust by participating in the project for California Holocaust Remembrance Week in April.

“It is important that we capture these stories to preserve the strength and beauty of the human spirit that enabled them to overcome the personification of evil, and honor those who lost their lives and ensure that their stories live on,” Williams said.

Both the students and the survivors or the liberators must live within the 35th Assembly District and be willing to participate in an on-camera interview that will be submitted to the Assembly and included in a video project containing other interviews from throughout the state.

Anyone interested in participating should contact Darcel Elliott in Williams’ Santa Barbara District Office at 805.564.1649.

The deadline to sign up for the project is 5 p.m. Feb. 11.

— James Joyce III is a field representative for Assemblyman Das Williams.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
