It can be hard to imagine what it must be like to be a survivor of the Holocaust.  A dark time in our history, 6 million Jews were murdered during the Holocaust, which took place between 1933 and 1945.  Historians estimate that there were 1.5 million children among the 6 million that perished. But for the Phoenix Holocaust Association (PHA), which is located in Scottsdale, the Holocaust is more than just a part of our history; it is a part of their personal history.

Started in the Valley more than 36 years ago, the Phoenix Holocaust Survivors Association, as it was known then, was a place for Holocaust survivors to connect with others with similar experiences. At its core then, as it is now, is recognizing the importance of talking about the Holocaust.  And who better to share the stories than those that were there?

Now known as the Phoenix Holocaust Association, we are a unique, regional resource for Holocaust education and remembrance. The Phoenix Holocaust Association promotes human dignity by inspiring people to speak out and take action against hate, bigotry, intolerance and discrimination.
