Moran Alfasi is a third-generation Holocaust Survivor. Her grandmother, Leah Greiner, was a Survivor who saved three girls in the Auschwitz Concentration Camp, making her Moran’s very first Holocaust Hero. She started this organization after creating a self development program called ‘My Family Hero’ for teenagers. The program was started in memory of her grandmothers and as she soon found out, the powerful life lessons she learned from them could also be used to empower and inspire others to welcome acceptance and unity in their life. It’s this that spurred her to help connect other Survivors with the community, so that everyone could learn from them as much as she did growing up, while allowing each Survivor to realize their own greatness.
As director, one of Moran’s roles is to reach out and find survivors all over the world, while empowering them with the resources and tools to share their story. Additionally, she created a network of volunteers who stay in constant communication with the Survivors, many of whom are aging in place and are alone as a result. This network is called the Tribe Project and consists of groups of individuals who come together and each give a little bit of their time, adding up to make a big difference in the lives of these brave men and women. Aside from her intregral role in Holocaust Heroes Worldwide, Moran is an entrepreneur as well as a personal and professional coach. Giving back to the community and being a social activist is important to her, which is why she is proud to serve as the Chairwoman for IAC EDGE Florida, which is a network of young professionals .
