The Czech Scrolls have been used in an estimated 100,000 b’nei mitzvah, confirming a new generation in their Judaism, the ultimate symbol that Nazi extermination failed.

Dozens of congregations have taken a further step, visiting the communities from which their scrolls come, meeting with local people and finding ways to ensure a continuing knowledge of the Holocaust and the communities it destroyed.

Six hundred synagogues regularly use their scrolls as part of a Holocaust memorial service or in Holocaust education programmes helping people to understand both the roots of prejudice.
