Welcome to the My Voice site where you will be introduced to the life stories of people who survived the Holocaust.
My Voice’s mission has been to record the actual words spoken by Survivors and Holocaust Refugees from Greater Manchester and the North West. From these we have produced individual books, written in the first person, voicing their experiences – before, during and after the war years.
We currently feature the synopses of 26 out of a total of 35 books published to date. More will be added in the Spring of 2023.
Our storytellers’ books are a triumph. They give honour to their lives and enable their stories to be passed on to their loved ones and future generations.
At the same time, they provide present day survivors of genocide and conflict with the possibility of believing in a brighter future.
As well as providing a synopsis of each book, you will also discover here numerous quotes and photographs to help build your understanding of what our storytellers endured. You will be able to appreciate how, despite the horrors they experienced, they managed to rebuild their lives successfully.

If you are a Survivor who wishes to participate in the My Voice project, or if you know someone who would like to take part, please get in touch. Similarly, if you wish to acquire a copy of any of the books, or arrange for a Survivor to speak at your school or organisation, please contact either Louise Senderowich or Jocelyne Elton.
