Denver couple dedicated to photographing Holocaust survivors

The Denver Post reports that John and Amy Israel Pregulman of Denver have a passion for photographing Holocaust survivors. Over five years, they have photographed 735 survivors in 36 cities, including some living in other countries. These photos only go to the survivors. They are not displayed in a museum or on a website. They simply give the photos to the survivors and their families to honor and preserve their legacy. This is a true labor of love.

The Pregulmans also started a nonprofit, called KAVOD, to provide emergency aid to survivors living in poverty. According to the organization, all donations go to survivors. KAVOD is based in Memphis.
