The Museum

Through its public exhibitions and programs, The Breman explores the universal themes of respect for difference, responsible citizenship, human dignity, and community-building through the lens of the Jewish experience. The museum provides visitors with a strong historical perspectiv,e as well as a positive example of the strength of the human spirit and our interdependence.  The Breman, a local and national resource, houses two permanent exhibitions, Absence of Humanity: The Holocaust Years which provides the history of the Holocaust and Creating Community: The Jews of Atlanta from 1845 to the Present, depicting Jewish life in the State of Georgia; one gallery for special exhibitions, a resource library, and extensive archives relating to Jewish history in Georgia with materials (including diaries, documents, scrapbooks, photographs, audio and video recordings, oral histories; and an extensive newspaper collection) that date back to the 1850s.
