Hear and Meet a Holocaust Survivor

For over three decades, Holocaust survivors have volunteered their time at the Museum of Tolerance to speak about their experiences during World War II. Over 50,000 visitors per year meet and hear a Holocaust Survivor. These survivors have been the most effective ambassadors of memory, hope and tolerance.

The Museum of Tolerance is proud to offer Holocaust survivor talks everyday. These lectures, scheduled multiple times a day, are included in museum admission and are approximately one hour in length. Please inquire at the front desk for the location and times.

"WITNESS TO TRUTH" - A Tribute To Our Holocaust Survivors


Photographs by Marissa Roth
The photographs included in the banner above are part of a loving tribute to our Holocaust Survivors. The MOT commissioned Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Marissa Roth to photograph each of these extraordinary people for our permanent exhibit “Witness to Truth." The portraits hang in a place of prominence on the ramp that descends from the MOT lobby to the Main Exhibit level of the museum. These Holocaust Survivors are volunteers some of whom have spoken at and some who continue speaking at the MOT. A number of Survivors have passed since these photographs were taken.
