The Museum of Jewish Heritage- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust opens a new exhibit: The Holocaust: What Hate Can Do on July 1. The exhibit aims to bring the horrific history to life through hundreds of objects and survivor testimonies including many on display for the first time ever. JewishGen is an affiliate of the Museum.

 

The exhibit uses 750 original objects, photos, film, and personal stories donated by survivors and their families who settled in New York and nearby to "tell a global story through a local lens," a spokesperson from the museum said in a statement. The artifacts speak to times before, during, and after the Holocaust, including Jewish life and experiences of "legalized racism and fascism, pogroms, ghettos, mass murder, and concentration camps."

 

The exhibit also includes an audio tour narrated by several speakers, including actress Julianna Margulies. The audio tour is available to download through the free Bloomberg Connects app. https://www.bloombergconnects.org/

of which the Museum is a partner.
