The Holocaust Awareness Museum is the premier provider of Holocaust education programs in the Delaware Valley. In the last school year alone, HAMEC completed over 500 programs and reached over 43,000 students. With passage of Pennsylvania’s new Holocaust and Genocide education law and implementation beginning this fall, those numbers are expected to increase exponentially. The museum is dedicated to educating students about the consequences of intolerance and hate. Each year museum programs provide students with 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.
