Using the resources of the museum, they educate Delaware Valley students and adults by personalizing the Holocaust so that they learn the consequences of racism, ethnic cleansing, and intolerance. The Holocaust was a watershed event, not only in the 20th century, but in the entire history of humanity. The study of the Holocaust provides one with the most effective ways to work with students to examine basic moral issues and value systems.
For a mitzvah project, volunteers can participate in their Witness To History Program “steps into the shoes” of Holocaust survivors and liberators and learn their unique testimonies. During this community service project, participants meet with the survivor, along with a member of the musueum’s Education Staff, listen to their testimony, ask questions, view a videotape, write a biography, and reenact their testimony to a group of people who have not heard it yet.
