"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

Museum mourns the loss of Kurt Herman

The Museum mourns the loss of Kurt Herman, one of our heroes.

Friend, mentor, and loved by all, he will be missed but his legacy continues through the HBO documentary "50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mr. And Mrs. Kraus" and the commitment of his family, friends, and students who have promised to carry on his story to reach thousands of young people with his remarkable story.

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.
