Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust Teen Advisory Board members have presented their final projects of this year’s Partnering Adolescents in Intergenerational Remembrance with Survivors (PAIRS) Program, now on display at the museum through July.

Projects included podcasts, films, photo essays and sculptures created by the teens and their survivor mentors.

The PAIRS Program matched teens with survivor mentors. It was launched by this year’s teen advisory committee, consisting of 10 students from eight Los Angeles schools.

Each teen and survivor pair got to know each other by meeting throughout the school year, preparing the teen to carry forward the memory of the survivor’s experiences. During the initial meeting for the program, the teens and survivor mentors shared objects and photos of personal significance and spoke about their background and family history.

The Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust is located at 100 The Grove Drive. For information, visit lamoth.org.
