Voices and Choices of Young People during the Holocaust
A Partnership of the Museum of Tolerance and Facing History and Ourselves

Presented in partnership with Facing History And Ourselves, this two-day institute brings participants to explore the voices of young people during the Holocaust – what factors contributed to their identity, what choices they made, and what students today can learn by studying the Holocaust to better understand ordinary people and human behavior. Using the unique exhibits of the Museum of Tolerance, including its newest Anne Frank exhibit, the program also features the opportunity to meet and listen to the testimony of a Holocaust survivor. Everyone walks away with new insights, tools, and valuable classroom resources.
