Preserving Holocaust History: Collecting Artifacts and Researching Fates
|Date||Wed, Mar 9, 11:00am - 12:00pm|
Join the New England community for a live virtual event featuring representatives from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s National Institute for Holocaust Documentation who collect, preserve, and make accessible to the public their vast collection of record. Learn how USHMM continues its acquisition efforts despite the pandemic and about the meticulous research process offered to Holocaust survivors, their families, and others wishing to discover more about the fate of those persecuted.
Hear from an expert in our Holocaust Survivors and Victims Resource Center and a curator from the National Institute for Holocaust Documentation, who help us teach this history with authenticity and relevance to every new generation.
USHMM will offer participants from New England and the Northeast region the opportunity to make appointments in the weeks following the program, to discuss donating artifacts to USHMM or get assistance researching family fates.
Fred Wasserman, Acquisitions Curator, National Institute for Holocaust Documentation, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
