The guided tour offers participants the opportunity to discover the history of the Holocaust through in-depth explanations from our guides. The knowledge and the anecdotes they share allow participants to learn more about the objects and testimonies presented in our permanent exhibition and to humanize the victims of the Holocaust.
During this immersive tour experience, students explore the objects in the exhibit and reflect on how they contribute to illustrating the history of the Holocaust.
In each section of the museum, a guide provides historical context before students embark on the exploration phase. Students work in small groups to observe and analyze the objects on display in order to understand how they illustrate the lived experience of Jewish communities. At the end of each section, a group discussion enables the tour guide to assess understanding and answer questions.
The self-guided tour allows participants to discover the Museum’s permanent exhibition on their own (without a guide). After a brief introduction by one of our front-desk agents, participants can explore, at their own pace, the history of Jewish communities before, during and after the Holocaust. For groups who are interested, an activity sheet provides historical context and focuses the visit on certain objects in the exhibition.

Our educational workshops allow students to explore the story of a Holocaust survivor through primary sources (video testimonies and artefacts).
In this workshop, students will discover Eva Kuper’s story. Eva was born in Warsaw in 1940, shortly after the Nazi invasion of Poland. A few months after her birth, her family was confined to the Jewish ghetto in Warsaw. After her mother was deported, Eva and her father managed to escape from the ghetto. They survived the war in hiding.
Through watching a video excerpt of Eva’s testimony and analyzing reproductions of artefacts that belonged to children and teenagers who survived the Holocaust in hiding, students will discover what life was like for them under the Nazi occupation and reflect on the difficult choices they had to make.
