The Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust commemorated 20 years of serving as New York’s Holocaust Memorial Museum with a series of special exhibitions and installations, public programs, and community events. Learning to Remember offered a glimpse of some of the most compelling, thought-provoking, and historically significant exhibitions presented by the Museum in the last two decades. These exhibitions explored important topics – from Jewish resistance against the Nazis to the American Jewish connection to Lady Liberty – and attracted diverse audiences to what is now the third largest Holocaust museum in the world.
The Morris and Fannie Pickman Keeping History Center – where visitors engaged with survivor testimony and experience the full effect of the Museum’s meaningful location – is a fitting place for an installation that looks back on this institution’s proud history.
Exhibitions at the Museum continue to promote Holocaust education, deepen public understanding, and allow visitors to discover important – and often understudied – moments in history.
Our 20th anniversary commemoration was made possible by major support provided by David Berg Foundation, Bruce C. Ratner, and Bernard and Anne Spitzer Charitable Trust.
In addition to the Museum’s 20th anniversary commemoration sponsors, Learning to Remember is made possible by Pickman Family Foundation, with additional support by Bank Leumi.
