About this site

About the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum

The Breman celebrates and commemorates the Jewish experience and the universal themes of diversity and human dignity. This is accomplished by collecting, preserving, interpreting and teaching Jewish values, culture and history. All of this is inspired by the dedication and courage of the Jewish people. As such, the museum desires to have an impact on behavior and promote mutual respect and understanding. By presenting the complex relationship between minority and majority communities within a culture, The Breman strives to underscore the need for every individual to make moral choices for the benefit of the entire society. One Thousand Children: Georgia's Role in the Rescue of Jewish Children is designed to be an educational website produced by the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum to inform the public about a part of Holocaust history that has received fairly little attention from researchers or the media.
