The Association of Jewish Refugees is trying to better understand how it can help the children of Holocaust survivors and refugees who now comprise a third of its membership.

London-based AJR said it was launching the online survey this week to help it tailor more relevant events, trips and activities for second generation members.

AJR’s Debra Barnes said: “As a second generation myself I recognise the value of the activities we are asking about in the survey… We are interested to hear what the second generation think about them and would like to see on offer.”

She said the survey asked about social events, trips to parents’ places of birth, cultural activities to celebrate parents’ heritage, workshops on how to write up a parent’s life story and even guidance on applying for an EU passport.

  • AJR chief executive Michael Newman said while the priority was supporting the first generation, there was “a definite appetite among our existing second generation members for more directly relevant support and connection”.Link to survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/AJR2G
