Descendants of Holocaust survivors frequently find themselves in possession of priceless artifacts connected to World War II and The Shoah. Central New York families are no exception.

Join us for an interactive seminar with Judith Cohen, Chief Acquisitions Curator at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC, and learn about the archive donation process.

Part I: The Donation Process (3-4pm)
Learn about the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the archives they keep, and explore the process of donating artifacts. Judy will answer general questions.

Part II: Show & Tell (4-5pm)
Local area attendees with artifacts (correspondence, photographs, clothing, art, medals or regalia, etc.) are encouraged to reserve a “Show & Tell” spot. Judy will view materials and hear connected family histories, and answer specific questions about the donation process.
