"Hearing one person tell their story gave a completely different perspective to what happened, as it wasn't about statistics or about a nation as a whole, but one person who lost his family and home." ~O. Avery (student)

The Holocaust Awareness Museum will be holding it's 52nd Annual Anniversary Banquet and Auction on Saturday November 9, 2013 from 7-10pm at the Philmont Country Club in Huntingdon Valley, PA.

Chuck Feldman (right) will be honored as being the President of the Museum for the last 30 years.

Our Museum, founded by the late Ya’akov Riz, is housed at the Klein JCC in Northeast Philadelphia and serves as a vivid reminder of the consequences of intolerance and hate. Our yearly event allows us to maintain and expand our permanent collection of artifacts as well as continue our thriving education program. This past year our museum arranged for survivors and liberators to visit 270 schools and other locations and helped over 34,000 students learn first hand about the Holocaust and assisted survivors and liberators to dispel the myths that have been promulgated since 1945.

Tickets for the Gala are $75 per person / $150 per couple and can be reserved by calling 215-464-4701.
