"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

Alden Lanphear passes away

The Holocaust Awareness Museum has lost a valued supporter and friend with the recent passing of Alden Lanphear. Alden was a longtime supporter of and advocate for our Museum. Alden brought hundreds of young people he worked with to us throughout the years to learn about tragedies caused by intolerance and bigotry. He was with us from the beginning, in Yaakov and Sheila's basement. He was with us during our journey to Gratz, Cherry Hill and Klein. And he is still with us today. His family is proud of the righteous life he led and we are privileged to have known and worked with him.

Museum now scheduling programs for our 50th program year



Are you teaching the Holocaust in your classroom? Are you looking for a powerful, invaluable, and memorable experience for your students?

The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center is now scheduling three different programs for the 2011-2012 school year that engage students and teachers in a dialogue that teaches the consequences of racism, ethnic cleansing, and intolerance and how these lessons resonate today. They are appropriate for 5th-12th grade students and can take place at your school or at the Museum in Northeast Philadelphia.

The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center is holding its 50th Anniversary Banquet and Silent Auction on Saturday night, October 29, 2011 at the JC Melrose Country Club in Cheltenham, PA.

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. In 2010/2011 Holocaust survivors and liberators spoke directly to over 10,000 students and other interested participants. Our Witness to History programs, Anne Frank Theater Project and Genocide lectures reached another 5,000 plus participants.

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