Please note for example artifacts can include concentration camp uniforms, Jewish stars, items from Jewish life before, the pre-war years, liberation, the DP camps, and material from the post-Holocaust life of Survivors in the United States and Israel.

These artifacts are the remnants of Survivor’s lives before and of their struggle during the Shoah. We look forward to giving these artifacts a permanent home for present and future generations to see. Every donated item will also be virtually displayed as per our museum designer, Patrick Gallagher.

Please do not discard any artifacts. Each one has a story to tell.

To donate artifacts or if you have any questions please call Erin at
