Preserving Holocaust History: Collecting Artifacts and Eyewitness Testimony


Preserving Holocaust History

Collecting Artifacts and Eyewitness Testimony



Join fellow Georgians and others across the Southeast for a live digital program featuring representatives from the Museum’s National Institute for Holocaust Documentation who collect, preserve, and make accessible to the public our vast collection of record on the Holocaust. Learn how the Museum continues its acquisition efforts despite the pandemic and about a project that, in a race against time, collects eyewitness accounts abroad to expand what is known about Holocaust history.
Hear from Museum staff who work with prospective donors of materials such as photos, letters, diaries, films, testimonies, and other objects that document the Holocaust, enabling us to teach this history with authenticity and relevance to every new generation.
We will offer participants from Georgia and the Southeast region the opportunity to make appointments in the weeks following the program to discuss donating artifacts to the Museum, contributing oral testimony, or requesting assistance researching family fates.

    CELEBRATE CHUTZPAH! Breman Museum's 25th Anniversary

    For over 25 years, The William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum has long been a part of the fabric of a vibrant midtown community. It has evolved from its early days as a museum dedicated to Jewish culture and heritage to what it has become today: the most respected Jewish history museum in the South. This September we are hosting an anniversary event to honor our past and celebrate our future! Join us as for this festive occasion which will be the first event of the Jewish New Year. Please mark your calendar now for the evening of Sunday, September 19, 2021. The event will include a tour of a powerful new exhibition entitled HISTORY WITH CHUTZPAH. The exhibition, steeped in passionate curatorial content, will reveal history once hidden in attics and filing cabinets. Guests will be invited to tour the newly installed exhibition followed by a dynamic, not to be missed evening of cocktails and cuisine ... entertainment and enlightenment.


  • Absence of Humanity : The Holocaust Years, 1933-1945

    This permanent exhibition presents the history of the Holocaust through artifacts and stories of Atlanta area Holocaust Survivors.

  • Seeking Justice : The Leo Frank Case Revisited

    Even after 100 years the events surrounding the murder of Mary Phagan and the trial and lynching of Leo Frank remain both disturbing and morbidly fascinating. Seeking Justice allows visitors to look at the momentous and tragic events of the years 1913-1915 through the lens of the societal and political tensions that existed in Atlanta at that time. The full exhibition provides an immersive experience for visitors, while an artifact only display for smaller spaces conveys this story's significance in a more condensed manner.
