Online Program

In coordination with the special exhibition, Stories of Survival, on view October 27, 2021 to February 27, 2022, we are pleased to embark on a new innovative series that explores Holocaust Museums & Memorials around the World.

Tali Nates, Founder and Director of the Johannesburg Genocide & Holocaust Centre will introduce us to Museum historians, experts, and contemporary witnesses in 10 different regions. We will travel virtually to explore the history behind museum exhibits, discuss the nature of memory and memorials, and discover how the world remembers and honors the lives lost during the Holocaust and other genocides.

Register through our partner, Classroom Without Borders, for this monthly series that will run all year-long at no-cost to you.
