Your speakers and docents were all incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and engaging, giving our students an invaluable experience. We look forward to our next visit!” – Mrs. Evans

Visiting the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust is an important educational experience for schools. Programs are aligned with the California Content Standards for English-Language Arts and History-Social Science.

The Museum strongly believes in educating about the Holocaust in order to encourage civic and social responsibility in today’s youth. This is done by providing inquiry based tours of the Museum. Students learn about the Holocaust by exploring original historical artifacts and documents. Visiting the Museum also provides the opportunity to meet a first hand witness of history, Holocaust Survivors.

A typical school visit includes:

  • An introduction to the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust’s history
  • An introduction to the Holocaust and its main events
  • A tour of the Museum collection
  • A Holocaust Survivor talk
  • Q&A with a Holocaust Survivor
