Holocaust educators are encouraged to contact the museum staff if they have any questions or concerns about creating and implementing their own Holocaust educational units and materials. Please consider joining the Museum for a special $20 Educator membership.

Holocaust Survivors or Liberators are often available to give their testimonies to groups Sunday through Friday (not appropriate for students under 7th grade). When booking your group tour, please let the tour coordinator know you would like to include a speaker as part of the group’s visit. Since Survivors and Liberators are volunteers, we cannot guarantee their availability, but every effort will be made to accommodate the group’s needs.
