The Speakers Bureau is comprised of Holocaust survivors, World War II veterans, and descendants of survivors who present their or their family’s experiences during the Holocaust  to groups of 20 or more people scheduled in advance.

Due to COVID-19, the Museum is offering testimony from members of the Speakers Bureau on Zoom.

Speakers are adept at sharing their insights with diverse audiences and contextualizing their own perspectives within the larger narratives of history. They provide experiences that are educational, emotional, and unforgettable.

A presentation by a member of the Speakers Bureau may be booked in conjunction with a virtual visit to the Museum or requested as an independent activity. Please note that all testimonies on Zoom will be hosted and recorded by the Museum.

Learn about your heritage. Ask questions. Remember the answers. There are not many of us left to tell you firsthand about what we know as the most evil of times for Jews and others whom the Nazis deemed inferior.”
—Ruth Zimbler, member of the Speakers Bureau

This 2007 article from The New York Times describes what a meaningful experience it is to be addressed by a member of the Speakers Bureau: “Absorbing the Holocaust, With Help From Survivors.”
