Mark your calendar for two special Museum events coming in January, 2017.
On January 24th, the Museum will hold a panel discussion on the refugee camp experience. The discussion will be a companion program to the Museum’s current special gallery exhibit, Rebirth after the Holocaust: Bergen-Belsen Displaced Persons Camp, 1945-1950.
Join us for the panel discussion and tour the exhibit to learn about the revival of Jewish culture following World War II and the Holocaust, as well as the hardships refugees faced in displaced persons camps as they sought to reclaim their lives and start anew.
The refugee camp experience panel discussion will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Museum and is open to the public. Featured panelists will be announced later.
On Sunday, January 29th, at 2 p.m. the Museum will honor International Holocaust Remembrance Day—the day when the world comes together to honor the millions of Jewish and non-Jewish victims of the Holocaust.
Marking the liberation of Auschwitz, International Holocaust Remembrance Day allows us to reflect upon the profound tragedy of the Holocaust. We also come together to share a moment of peace and hope for the future. The program is free. Admissions fees for Museum exhibits apply.
