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 via ZOOM every Wednesday at 1:00pm Pacific Time.
