Join fellow Georgians and others across the Southeast for a live digital program featuring representatives from the Museum’s National Institute for Holocaust Documentation who collect, preserve, and make accessible to the public our vast collection of record on the Holocaust. Learn how the Museum 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 from a specialist who conducts oral history interviews that help us teach this history with authenticity and relevance to every new generation.

We will offer participants from Georgia and the Southeast region the opportunity to make appointments in the weeks following the program to discuss donating artifacts to the Museum and participating in oral history testimonies.
