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 and implementation which began this fall, those numbers are expected to increase exponentially. The museum has been dedicated to educating students about of the consequences of intolerance and hate. Each year museum programs reach thousands of students through Holocaust survivor presentations, school visits, videos, and plays through our 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 also private donations.
