Wanted: Translators

Do you read a foreign language?
Do you want to volunteer but can’t find the right project?

Look no further. We are looking for people who would help us translate some Holocaust related artifacts, letters, and/or documents. We are looking for languages such as Russian, German, French, Polish, Hungarian, Romanian, and/or other languages that would have written to others during the Holocaust.
If you wish to help out and volunteer in this manner please contact the Museum. We will be happy to hear from you. Thank you.
