The UN: Remembrance and Beyond
The United Nations’ Holocaust outreach program seeks to remind the world of the lessons to be learned from the Holocaust in order to help prevent future acts of genocide.
The program was set up at the request of the United Nations General Assembly in resolution 60/7 adopted on 1 November 2005. The United Nations Department of Public Information (UNDPI) has taken the lead in creating a broad-based initiative encouraging UN Member States to develop educational curricula on the Holocaust and to mobilize civil society for education and awareness.

CASIP: The Committee for Jewish Social Action in Paris was created on October 24, 1809 under the aegis of the Consistory of Jews in France. It took the name CASIP in 1963. Since its inception, CASIP has worked to fight poverty in the Paris Jewish community, developing several services over time: soup kitchens, loan banks, clothing drives, old age homes, institutions for children and students and unemployment assistance.

COJASOR: The Jewish Committee for Social Action and Reconstruction was created in secrecy and officially founded the day after the Second World War ended with the aim of helping Holocaust survivors. The main body of assistance for victims of Nazi persecution, set up with help from the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC or “Joint”) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, was an important resource, especially to the elderly. The first old age home opened in Aix-les-Bains in 1945, the second in Nice four years later.
