Welcome to the Web site of Holocaust survivor Alter Wiener. Alter survived an incredible 35 months in Nazi concentration camps, yet you will find no bitterness -- only kindness -- in this remarkable man.

The above monument was dedicated to Alter Wiener by Baker Prairie Middle School, Canby, Oregon in May 2013. It may be the only known monument dedicated to a living Holocaust survivor in the USA.
Nicole from Lower Columbia College (WA) wrote, "Dear Mr. Wiener, Your story was very touching; it brought tears to my eyes more than once. It reminded me to be humble and grateful for what I have and not to forget to recognize the blessings that God gave me. You are a man that stands as a role model for my generation; someone with passion, kindness and love in his heart for everyone. Thank you so much."
