Young professionals who are part of the Glass Leadership Institute in both the Los Angeles and San Diego regions joined together to visit the new Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust on February 27.  The event started with a docent presenting information about the story of the museum, its architect (a former Glass graduate) and future plans for the children's memorial.  

The group was introduced to the artist and museum staff person who assembled and mounted a temporary exhibit comprised of pictures of some of the 10,000 children who escaped on the Kindertransport.  Regional Director Amanda Susskind pointed out the picture of her father, who escaped from Prague in August of 1939.

The participants toured the entire museum with audio-guides that provided an overview of the museum's Holocaust-era artifacts and exhibits.  Following the tour, the group had a discussion with a Holocaust survivor and learned about ADL's Holocaust Education programs and resources.
