There will be food for sale, vendor tables, raffles, and books written by our survivors for sale as well.

Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door, $10 for Museum members, seniors and students.  Children under 12 are free. The event is open to the public. Please RSVP to tammy@hamec.org or 215-464-4701.

The Holocaust Awareness Museum is the premier provider of Holocaust education programs in the Delaware Valley.  In the last school year alone, HAMEC completed nearly 500 programs and reached over 43,000 students. With passage of Pennsylvania’s new Holocaust and Genocide education law, those

numbers are expected to increase exponentially.  The museum has been dedicated to educating students about the consequences of intolerance and hate.  Each year museum programs reach thousands of students through Holocaust survivor presentations, school visits, videos, and plays such as the Anne

Frank Theater Project.  The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center is a non-profit organization supported by grants from the Conference on Material Claims Against Germany, government and foundation grants and private donations.
