Masha Girshin Tapped To Lead The Blue Card

[The Blue Card](], a non-profit that aids impoverished Holocaust survivors in need of financial and medical aid, has hired Masha Girshin as its new executive director.

Girshin began as a former program coordinator at The Blue Card in 2009. Last year, The Blue Card has distributed $1.6 million to 3,000 Holocaust survivors. Since its founding in 1934, the organization has donated $24 million.

“The aiding of Holocaust survivors is a cause I hold near and dear, and my hope is to exponentially increase awareness of the thousands of survivors that still struggle today so many years after World War II,” Girshin said in a statement.
