Charity number


The HSFA is a Leeds-based charity set up in 1996. Our aim is to preserve the memory, testimony and records of Holocaust survivors living in Yorkshire, England for research, teaching and learning.We use the lessons from our members' experience to work towards a more tolerant society in which difference and diversity are celebrated. The organisation is run by a team of committed volunteers. Membership of our Association is open to all who share our aims.

Our members regularly visit schools, colleges, universities, community groups and other organisations to give living witness accounts of their personal experiences as refugees, hidden children and survivors of concentration and death camps. Our website contains filmed testimony of Holocaust survivors, learning resources for schools and a detailed evidence base of original historical records made available in partnership with the German National Archives at Bad Arolsen.  

We are currently working with the University of Huddersfield to establish a new Holocaust Heritage and Learning Centre for the north of England scheduled to open in Spring 2018. Heritage Lottery Fund are supporting the project with £604,000 and we are raising a further £400,000 in match funding. Donations to our fundrasing page will be used to support his project which will create an exhibition, learning centre, archive collection and a community and schools education programme for communities across the north of England.
