Remember Me: Children of the Holocaust


 Special exhibit for and about children

Exhibit Extended to December 30, 2016

Remember Me: Children of the Holocaust is the harrowing story of the Holocaust as told through the eyes of its youngest victims and survivors.  Using diaries and survivor testimonies the story unfolds of lives forever changed by bigotry and prejudice.  Beginning with pre-war life, family pictures, narratives, artifacts, and recorded diary excerpts, this exhibit will engage even the youngest visitors as they travel through the unfolding events of the children’s lives (rise of Nazism, ghettos, hiding, and rescue).

The exhibit’s interactive and hands-on design brings history to life and will engage visitors of all ages in discovering the experiences of children of the Holocaust while also encouraging those who see it to be Upstanders in their community- no matter their age.

Recommended for 6 years old and above.

Featured Survivor Testimony

This is Sara Hauptman. Sara worked in the resistance until her arrest and deportation to Auschwitz. She was then sent to Dachau and was liberated by the American Army in 1945. You can read her bio and see more of her video testimonies here.
