Visit Atlanta’s Jewish Museum

With its focus on education, Jewish history, culture and arts the Breman Museum features exhibitions, events, programs, tours, museum store and genealogy resources. Its Holocaust exhibition tells the story of this tragic time in Europe through the eyes and experiences of survivors who eventually made their home Atlanta. Additional exhibition space is dedicated to Southern Jewish history, culture and arts.

More than a Holocaust Museum

The Breman Museum examines the Holocaust through the lens of the Four Rs by focusing on the stories of: Jewish Resourcefulness: Despite threats of reprisal and death, Jews opened underground schools, libraries, soup kitchens, and infirmaries. Jewish Resistance: The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising was the first urban revolt in occupied Europe. It lasted more than a month, longer than the defense of many European countries, and inspired other Jewish uprisings. Jewish Rescue: Jews knowingly put themselves in danger to support and save other Jews. Poet Hannah Senesh parachuted into occupied Yugoslavia to rescue Hungarian Jews slated for deportation to Auschwitz. Jewish Resilience: Despite losing everything, including their families and all worldly possessions, Holocaust survivors put down roots in new lands, pursued education, mastered professions, opened businesses, and raised families.

Southern Jewish History – The Breman Museum is home to the Cuba Family Archives for Southern Jewish History, the most extensive resource of its kind, with its thousands of photographs, objects, papers, oral histories and videos documenting the Jewish experience throughout the South from the birth of America through the Civil War up to the 21st century. Searchable online or at the museum archives library.

Culture and Arts – The Breman Museum presents special exhibitions, performances, discussions, tours and talks covering Jewish contribution to the arts and Jewish culture through the ages with the goal of connecting with people of all backgrounds while fostering respect and understanding.

We also offer unique opportunities, such as:

  • The ability to research Southern Jewish history with the most extensive archive and library resources in the area
  • Group and individual tours of the museum and special exhibits
  • Special concerts and performances exemplifying Jewish contributions to music and arts
