Imagine traveling back in time to help holocaust victims.

KTLA’s Chris Schauble introduces us to  Zane Buzby.

For decades Eastern European holocaust survivor went without help and lived in squalor… until Zane Buzby came along during her quest to visit her grandparents’ village in Belarus back in 2001.

From that visit the Los Angeles based ”Survivor Mitzvah Project” was born.

Now Buzby and her small staff visit or send aid to holocaust survivors as often as possible.

The response and gratitude has been overwhelming.

Buzby says unlike other organizations… the “Survivor Mitzvah Project” helps holocaust survivors who have somehow fallen through the cracks.
