"It was cool to have a chance to listen to a real person speak about what he went through during the Holocaust. He was the most credible source that we could have. I learned a lot more through his pictures and stories." ~ Boys Latin Charter School student
The Holocaust Awareness Museum remembers Melvin Newman
The Holocaust Awareness Museum is sad to announce the passing away of Melvin Newman, a long time friend, volunteer and colleague.
Melvin was a World War II veteran who, along with hundreds of other young Jewish GIs, liberated concentration camps. Along with the Jewish War Veterans Post 697, he created a Holocaust project to educate young people.
