LT on the Go

Wednesday, April 18th @ 10AM

Please join us for a virtual tour of The Museum of Jewish Heritage’s Meeting Hate with Humanity: Life During the Holocaust. This tour examines the impact of World War II and the Nazi genocide on Jewish lives and communities in Europe.

Through inquiry-based artifact exploration, participants will examine issues of continuity of cultural identity, responsibility to community, and decision-making. This virtual tour is part of the Museum’s exhibit “Auschwitz. Not long ago, Not far away,” which closes on May 2nd.

The tour will be led by one of the Museum’s Gallery Educators, who will narrate a video containing artifacts from the Museum's collection. The Educator will pause the video throughout the virtual tour to take questions and comments from participants.

Please register by Tuesday morning, April 20th
