The founding Survivors insisted that everyone be given the opportunity to learn and no visitor would ever be turned away because of an entry fee. Through programs that value intergenerational dialogue and artifact- based learning, LAMOTH continues its mission to commemorate, educate, and inspire.“The relevancy and urgency of our mission has never been more critical than it is in today’s environment. We are creating a strategic plan that will ensure that we continue to provide free educational programming, opportunities for dialogue with Holocaust Survivors, and substantially grow our audience while teaching them the relevance of becoming stewards of this important history,” Beth Kean, Executive Director of LAMOTH.“What we do, it’s about promoting empathy and fighting intolerance. It’s needed now more than ever,” Paul Nussebaum, LAMOTH Board President.HistoryLos Angeles Museum of the Holocaust is the oldest Holocaust Survivor founded Museum in the United States. In 1961, a group of Holocaust Survivors taking English as a Second Language classes at Hollywood High School met and realized their deep connection and drive to steward the past. They began meeting to discuss their own personal experiences, the importance of commemorating their lost relatives and friends, and educating future generations. They each possessed precious primary sources, such as photographs, artifacts, documents and memories and decided that these objects needed a permanent home – a sanctuary for documentation, commemoration, preservation and education. The space would serve as a physical location where they could memorialize their lost loved ones and educate future generations about the Holocaust.
