Men’s Club Speaker Forum: Preserving Holocaust History Through Research

Wednesday, April 13, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

We invite you to join us for our April Speaker Forum. This month the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum will present a live virtual program featuring a general overview on the Museum’s educational and exhibitions programs and its free research on individuals’ paths of persecution during the Holocaust.
Learn how staff researchers from the Holocaust Survivors and Victims Resource Center at the National Institute for Holocaust Documentation provides free services to Holocaust survivors, their families, teachers, scholars, documentary filmmakers, and others wishing to discover more about the fate of those persecuted.
They will share case studies and stories based on the collections.

The Museum’s National Institute for Holocaust Documentation is responsible for building, preserving, and making accessible America’s Collection of Record, one of the world’s foremost collections of materials and documentation on the Holocaust. They will offer participants the opportunity to make appointments after the program.
