On the 75th anniversary of the largest deportation of French Jews during the Shoah, the Vélodrome d’Hiver (“Vél d’Hiv”) roundup, learn about the history of the Holocaust from those who survived it. Hear testimony from survivors highlighting personal experiences during the Holocaust, and take a self-guided tour of the Museum free of charge during our open house event.

Sometimes the Door is Already Open

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.

Survivor Stories

You will have the opportunity to hear testimony from two Holocaust survivors during your Museum visit. The first testimony will be in English at 11 am, and the second will be in French at 1 pm. Join us on July 16 to meet two Montreal-based Holocaust survivors and hear about their experiences during the Holocaust.
