3G at LAMOTH is a community for grandchildren of Survivors who are helping to shape the future of Holocaust remembrance and education. Our mission is based on memory, education, community, and social action, drawing on our own personal connections as stewards of our grandparents' legacies and the rich resources and support of Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust.

Our 3G @ LAMOTH group is committed to carrying on our grandparents' stories and legacies which live in our personal histories and in our DNA. It is our responsibility to remember, it is our responsibility to educate, and it is our responsibility to inspire. As a 3G group, we stand for commemorating our past, changing the future, and creating a world of mutual respect.  We teach how hate, discrimination, and prejudices lead to one of the worst chapters in human history. The Holocaust was a Jewish tragedy, but also a tragedy for all of humanity. What we do matters, and education helps us to close the gaps that divide us.

L'Dough V'Dough: Light and Miracles 


We made challah and chanukiot with Holocaust survivors, observing the Jewish traditions of Hanukkah and connecting young adults with Holocaust survivors for intergenerational dialogue, exploration of personal narratives, and learning about Jewish life before, during, and after the Shoah.

Evoking the Hebrew phrase, “L’Dor V’Dor,” or “from generation to generation,” L’Dough V’Dough brings people together to share, remember, and bond one generation to the next in an environment conducive to asking questions and encouraging dialogue.

This experience was part of the Infinite Light citywide festival, made possible by a partnership with NuRoots, an initiative of The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles.


Legendary Bingo

Our bingo fundraiser at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood featured exciting prizes and a live auction. All proceeds benefited Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust. 


Genealogy Workshop


We held a genealogy workshop with former Museum President Randy Schoenberg, Jewish genealogy expert and Geni.com volunteer curator. Randy talked about how to get started researching one's family history. The story of Randy's legal battle to recover Klimt paintings from the Austrian government on behalf of his client, Holocaust survivor Maria Altmann, was depicted in the recent film, Woman in Gold.


3G at LAMOTH Movie Screening 

We screened Never Forget – A March of the Living Story, a short film about young adults in their 20s and 30s learning from and connecting with Holocaust Survivors during a life-changing trip to Poland and Israel. The screening was followed by Q&A with the film's director.

The film is produced by Anthony Salamon, a grandchild of Holocaust Survivors, and directed by Adam Dostalek.


Stewards of Memory: A Narrative Workshop


Presenters included 3G Executive Board members Jordanna Gessler and Caitlin Kress as well as filmmakers Sylvia Saether and Adam Dostalek and authors Leslie Gilbert-Lurie and her mother, Holocaust Survivor Rachel Lurie. The workshop explored how we carry and understand our families' histories and how they shape our identity.
