Social programs
for Holocaust survivors
in Vienna and Budapest

Between June, 2006 and March, 2020, we held regular get-togethers for the people we interviewed in both Vienna and Budapest.

During Covid, we’ve been sending them newsletters, along with books, flowers, CDs and boxes of sweets.

Combatting antisemitism in the lands where the Holocaust took place

No other organization works in as many schools in Eastern Europe as we do. Much of our funding comes from the Claims Conference, the German government and the EU.

If this is an issue that concerns you, write us at office@centropa.org and we can target programs together.


We target specific school districts where we have been making a difference: inner city Newark and Baltimore, rural schools in the Carolinas, Palm Beach County, Houston and East Los Angeles.

Help us stand with them with competitions and award winning programs. Most of our students are minority, most depend on free or reduced cost lunches. 


Like every non-profit, we need support to over our adminsration costs, as well as developing our website, printing our annual reports and paying our accountants each year. We have teams working in Washington, Hamburg, Vienna and Budapest. General support is always welcome—and needed! and we can target programs together.
