Our Museum houses the largest public collection of personal Holocaust artifacts in Philadelphia belonging to survivors, liberators, and resistors and their families and is open to the public. They tell individual stories of pre-war European life, ghettos and concentration camps, resistance, liberation, resettlement, and transitions to Philadelphia. These precious artifacts, documents, and photographs relate the tragic and inspirational stories of our local survivor community.
We offer personalized Museum Tours for individuals, families, and classes during the week by appointment. These can last anywhere between thirty minutes to more than two hours. We request that you contact us beforehand to schedule a tour.
