The Holocaust Awareness Museum would like to thank everyone who made our Annual Auction possible and who made it a huge success this year.
People like you make it possible for the Museum to engage students and adults in a dialogue with Holocaust survivors in order to examine the significance of the Holocaust and how it applies today.
Last year we reached more than 4,300 students in more than 45 schools. This year we are on track to reach more than that and only through your generous contributions is this possible.

Their story is one of history's most remarkable epics of survival. On the night of October 12, 1942, as the Nazis intensified their grip eastern Europe, several Jewish families, including grandmothers and toddlers, disappeared into Priest's Grotto, a vast labyrinth of caves in western Ukraine. For a year and a half they lived, worked, and outlasted the Nazis.
