Witness To History Project to be Presented

We are pleased to invite you to participate in our first Witness To History Project of the 2009-2010 academic year which will take place on November 19 at 6:45pm. Kurt Herman, a Kindertransport survivor, will share his story with you and a small group of other interested students/individuals.

Thank You

The Holocaust Awareness Museum would like to thank everyone who made our Annual Auction possible and who made it a huge success this year.
People like you make it possible for the Museum to engage students and adults in a dialogue with Holocaust survivors in order to examine the significance of the Holocaust and how it applies today.

Last year we reached more than 4,300 students in more than 45 schools. This year we are on track to reach more than that and only through your generous contributions is this possible.

Thank You.
