Share Our Stories

Share Our Stories at Holocaust Museum LA connects students from under-resourced schools with Holocaust Survivors for meaningful dialogue, artifact-based learning, Museum gallery exploration, and reflective art workshops. Students are encouraged to find personal expression through artistic mediums while amplifying their voices through art. They find common ground with Holocaust survivors and see their own strength in the survivors’ experiences. In addition to providing free Holocaust education and arts programming for a collective impact, we invite individual stories and experiences of every student into the wider context of history and community. 

*Share our Stories is offered both hybrid and virtually for the 2021/2022 school year. 

 

The program is provided at no cost to participating classrooms and includes:

 

  • A virtual or in-person docent-led, customized tour of the Museum.

  • A virtual survivor speaking engagement in which a Holocaust survivor shares their experiences before, during, and after the Holocaust.

  • Virtual or in-person art reflection workshop for students. Materials will be supplied by museum.

The program will be conducted over a series of virtual sessions that take place over a period of 2-5 weeks, depending on the academic calendar for the partnering school and the Museum schedule.

Share Our Stories Project is free to participating classes through a generous grant from the
Max H. Gluck Foundation.

If you are a teacher or school administrator interested in bringing Share Our Stories to your community for the 2021-22 school year,  please complete this form.

L’Dough V’Dough

Evoking the Hebrew phrase “L’Dor V’Dor,” or “from generation to generation,” L’Dough V’Dough invites participants to braid and bake challah or cookies with Survivors at the Museum, synagogues and school campuses. While kneading the dough, students and Survivors share, remember, and bond -- one generation to the next -- in an environment conducive to asking questions and encouraging dialogue. The casual setting emulates a dinner conversation, providing an entry point and safe place for students as young as third graders through adults to learn about this complicated history and engage on a personal level with Survivors in important, age-appropriate conversations, focused on the Holocaust, Jewish culture and heritage, and social action. 

Studies have shown that multi-sensory experiences like L'Dough V'Dough can engage individuals with different learning styles, activate memories, and stimulate creativity and communication.

B’nai Mitzvah:

Acts of Memory 

The Museum's B'nai Mitzvah: Acts of Memory project offers students preparing for their Bar or Bat Mitzvah

the opportunity to remember a child who perished in the Holocaust. We match each student with a child who has a similar name or who was born in a city or country that has special meaning for the student’s family. Once matched, we provide information about the child’s life and family, historical context, and suggestions for ways to remember the child, such as mentioning the child in a dvar Torah, or doing mitzvot as a way to commemorate and honor

 

As with all of our programs, there is no charge to participate. We recommend a suggested donation of $54 which allows us to offer the opportunity to additional students. Please click here to make a donation.
