In honor of Yom HaShoah we will be offering free admission to our signature exhibition Absence of Humanity: The Holocaust Years, 1933-1945.

About Manuela Mendels Bornstein:

Manuela and her family survived the Holocaust hiding in Vichy, France. Her story honors the "conspiracy of goodness" that saved them from Parisian neighbors and friends, to members of the Resistance, to the grace of villagers who never revealed their whereabouts despite great danger to themselves.

Jointly Sponsored by Eternal-Life Hemshech, the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum, and the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta.


*Regular museum admission must be paid for access to Atlanta Collects and Eighteen Artifacts: A Story of Jewish Atlanta.
