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 live Holocaust survivor talks IN-PERSON at the Museum of Tolerance every Wednesday and Sunday at 1:00pm. (Included with admission)

WITNESS TO TRUTH - A Tribute To Our Holocaust Survivors

Pulitzer Prize–winning photojournalist Marissa Roth has photographed over 100 Holocaust survivors, whose black-and-white portraits hang in a place of prominence on the spiraling ramp that connects and fills the core of the Museum. Started in 2005, Witness to Truth was a commissioned project to capture the community of survivors who have volunteered and shared their own testimonies of survival at the Museum of Tolerance.
