Join the New England community for a live virtual program featuring representatives from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s National Institute for Holocaust Documentation who collect, preserve, and make accessible to the public our vast collection of record on the Holocaust. Learn how the Museum continues its acquisition efforts despite the pandemic and about the meticulous research process offered to Holocaust survivors, their families, and others wishing to discover more about the fate of those persecuted.
Hear from an expert in our Holocaust Survivors and Victims Resource Center and a curator from the National Institute for Holocaust Documentation, who help us teach this history with authenticity and relevance to every new generation.
We will offer participants from New England and the Northeast region the opportunity to make appointments in the weeks following the program, to discuss donating artifacts to the Museum or get assistance researching family fates.
This program is free and open to the public, but reservations are required. To reserve a spot, please visit ushmm.org/events/new-england-collections. Registrants will receive an email with a link to join the program.
