"Anyone can go to the Holocaust museum [in Washington DC] but not everyone gets this experience." ~A. Speitel (student, 17)
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.
