Holocaust Museum LA invites you to explore your own heritage and life story and create a window display that contains objects that represent you and your identity. Each and every member of the community has an important story to tell, just as the founding Survivors of Holocaust Museum LA did when they established the Museum in 1961. Instructions on how to create your own museum display window can be found below.
This comprehensive teacher guide uses artworks in Holocaust Museum LA’s collection to encourage critical thinking around art and primary sources, imploring students to contemplate the connection between history and contemporary social issues. Students will study how Erich Lichtblau-Leskly utilized art as a form of spiritual and intellectual resistance during the Holocaust.
Discover artifacts through coloring in Holocaust Museum LA’s collection coloring book. Each page includes an artifact with a brief description and reflective questions for students to consider as they draw. Share your finished designs with us using the hashtags: #holocaustmuseumla, #artsandarchives.
