Jewish Family Services in Youngstown is creating unique books that will share stories of local Jewish community members.

The Life Stories project was celebrated on Monday at the Jewish Community Center.

As part of the project, many people were interviewed, and their unique stories were recorded for eleven different books.

Organizers say it was a creative way to improve the health and quality of life for the people in the area.

One woman says her point of view as a person born right after the Holocaust is seldom heard.

"I'm a child of survivors. Born in Germany, I entered Israel in 1949 and came to the states in 1959," says Sofia Kapon. 

All of the clients over the age of 70 served by Jewish Family Services will receive copies of the books.
