The speakers are chosen for the diversity of their stories during the period of the Holocaust to help develop awareness that the Holocaust encompassed a wide range of experiences.
The goal of the program is to help the community become witnesses to this time in history as speakers recount their individual experiences during World War II and the Holocaust. After meeting these survivors through their presentations the audience is invited to participate in a question and answer period. By attending this program, the audience members also becomes active participants in the process of understanding and further sharing of the messages from each Survivor.
This program was originally developed by the Holocaust Council of Greater MetroWest New Jersey, specifically for the Morris Museum’s outreach to schools and has been hosted for many years for students across the state of New Jersey. This year, this special program is being opened to the community at-large as a unique educational opportunity.
