Join us at our open house to learn about the history of the Holocaust from those who survived it. Hear testimony from survivors highlighting personal experiences during the Holocaust, and visit the Museum free of charge.
Open House at the Museum
During your visit to the Museum, discover artefacts that bring additional significance to survivor accounts, by portraying Jewish life before, during and after the Holocaust. Your visit will give you a sense not only of the tragedy, but also an opportunity to hear inspiring stories of resistance, survival and solidarity.
A Survivor’s Story
As part of our events series surrounding the Jan Karski exhibit, we invite you to meet Holocaust survivors from Poland. Hear testimony from survivors in French at 11 am and in English at 1 pm, about their experiences during the Shoah.
