Teen Advisory Board Application

Teen Advisory Board Application

Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, the first survivor-founded Holocaust museum in the nation, commemorates those who perished, honors those who survived, educates about the Holocaust, and inspires a more dignified and humane world.

The Museum aims to inspire humanity through truth and foster core values of honesty, respect, acceptance, and empathy. As a survivor founded institution, the Museum’s galleries teach the Holocaust through the experience of victims and survivors while contextualizing the history through the lens of Los Angeles.
