Through guided investigation of the Karkomi Holocaust Exhibition, students explore the history of the Holocaust as told through the personal belongings, photographs, historical records, and stories of local survivors and eyewitnesses. Transforming history into lessons for today, the tour invites students to consider the power of choice, responsibility, citizenship, and human rights, and to discover what influences our decisions to act as bystanders or Upstanders in response to inhumanity.
Your tour may also include visits to other Museum exhibitions.
Due to Covid-19 and the safety of our Speakers’ Bureau, the interactive Survivor Stories Experience will not be scheduled.

Your tour may include the Act of Art Gallery.
Mandela: Struggle for Freedom traces the history of the struggle against apartheid in South Africa, with Nelson Mandela as one of its leaders. With immersive environments, Mandela promotes human rights with a central message: all people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
