Become an MJH member and experience our new series of virtual Members-Only Gallery Talks. Every month, go behind the scenes with an educator and explore fascinating works from the Museum’s renowned collection, coupled with a live Q&A.

The Museum’s Gallery Educators often have personal connections to the Holocaust. In our next Members-Only Gallery Talk, Gallery Educator Dr. Beth Gerson will take us behind-the-scenes for a closer look at several family heirlooms recently donated to the Museum. Never before seen by the public, these treasured objects tell the story of Dr. Gerson’s in-laws who were impacted by the Polenaktion (Polish Action) of 1938, in which thousands of Jews living in Germany—but bearing Polish citizenship—were deported from Germany. Explore the stories behind newly-acquired jewelry, photographs, and more in this special Members-Only Gallery Talk.

Join as a member online to automatically receive the Zoom information, plus an entire year of member access to the Museum. Participants will be sent a reminder an hour before the program begins.
