Featuring rare and never-before-exhibited artifacts, artwork,and the museum premiere of The Last Goodbye,
an immersive virtual reality testimony produced by USC Shoah Foundation.
In Confidence: Holocaust History Told By Those Who Lived It is a new, multimedia installation that encourages visitors to engage with personal expressions of Holocaust experience. Correspondence, possessions, photographs, artworks, journals, testimonies—history has confided these to us. Through each we can listen, reflect, and respond. The installation will be on view at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust from September 16, 2018 to January 31, 2019.
Visitors will discover artifacts from the collections of the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, a special presentation of The Girl in the Diary (in partnership with the Galicia Jewish Museum), an introduction to the stunning work of acclaimed artist Mikhail Turovsky, and an encore presentation of the HBO film The Number on Great-Grandpa’s Arm.
In Confidence also features the museum premiere of The Last Goodbye—an immersive virtual reality testimony (produced by USC Shoah Foundation). In his final return to Majdanek, Holocaust survivor Pinchas Gutter tours the concentration camp where his parents and twin sister were murdered during World War II. As Pinchas recounts his experiences, you walk alongside him—seeing what he sees, hearing what he hears, and learning as he guides visitors through an account of his own history. The Last Goodbye represents unprecedented advances in storytelling through technology. (Reservations recommended for this 20-minute experience.)
