The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) asked New Yorkers for family artifacts from World War ll.  They collected 250 artifacts thus far. As Holocaust survivors are aging and many have died this is a program racing against time. The USHMM decided to focus on New York City and surrounding areas as a large population of Holocaust survivors and their descendants live in the area.

 

The artifacts will be digitized and join the Museum’s collection.

 

If you wish to donate related artifacts to the USHMM please contact them at curator@... or call at (202) 488-2649.
