The ’45 Aid Society was set up by ‘The Boys’ in 1963 to raise money for charitable causes, to give back to society and to look after other Holocaust survivors. Charity continues to play an important part in the work of the Society, which is now run by the 2nd and 3rd generation – the children and grandchildren of ‘The Boys’. The ’45 Aid Society raises funds to support Holocaust education, with an education programme involving the 2nd and 3rd generation giving talks telling their parents’ and grandparents’ stories in schools across the UK, to ensure that it never happens again.
