A Voice of Survival
Anneliese Nossbaum shares her tale of life during time of horror.

HAZLE TWP. – One of the few items Anneliese Nossbaum brought with her when she boarded a train headed to the Auschwitz concentration camp in Nazi Germany in 1944 was a photo of her father.

The young teen had cut out the image of his face and smuggled it into the camp after Nazi soldiers told their Jewish captives they had to leave behind all of their belongings before entering the camp.

Alden Lanphear passes away

The Holocaust Awareness Museum has lost a valued supporter and friend with the recent passing of Alden Lanphear. Alden was a longtime supporter of and advocate for our Museum. Alden brought hundreds of young people he worked with to us throughout the years to learn about tragedies caused by intolerance and bigotry. He was with us from the beginning, in Yaakov and Sheila's basement. He was with us during our journey to Gratz, Cherry Hill and Klein. And he is still with us today. His family is proud of the righteous life he led and we are privileged to have known and worked with him.
