This month we are featuring the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust.
The Museum is committed to the crucial mission of educating diverse
visitors about Jewish life before, during, and after the Holocaust. As a
place of memory, the Museum enables Holocaust survivors to speak
through recorded testimony and draws on rich collections to illuminate
Jewish history and experience. As a public history institution, it
offers intellectually rigorous and engaging exhibitions, programs, and
educational resources. The exhibit “Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away.” opens May 8.
