Friends of the Ghetto Fighters’ House Museum: Update for 2015

The past year saw much activity among the Friends of the Ghetto Fighters’ House Museum around the world and in Israel. The generous support of our Friends organizations makes the many educational activities possible.

Memorial Event in Honor of Monia Avrahami at Yad LaYeled

At the end of February, an event was held at Yad LaYeled in memory of Monia Avrahami, who served as General Director of the Ghetto Fighters’ House Museum for 10 years. All the members of his family were invited to the event. Following the opening speeches, Anat Carmel, Director of Yad LaYeled, presented the family with an album containing historical photographs and documents from the museum’s archival collection, which recounted the role played by Monia in the establishment of the Ghetto Fighters' House Museum.

New Exhibiton: Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race

Now at the Ghetto Fighters' House: "Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race", which is a traveling exhibition produced by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Through reproductions of photographs and documents, films, and survivor testimony, it traces how the persecution of groups deemed biologically inferior led to the near annihilation of European Jewry.

Now Available in Spanish: The Documentary Film "What Are You Fighting For?"

The documentary film "What Are You Fighting For?" has recently been translated to Spanish. The translation and production of the film were made possible due to a generous donation from Maccabi Buenos Aires. The movie is one of the many educational materials in Spanish developed by the Ghetto Fighters' House.

Renovation of the Historical Floor: New Exhibitions Due to Open in 2015

The "House" is planning a new permanent exhibition as well as a number of temporary exhibits, including "Deadly Medicine", on loan from the United States Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.

New exhibition: "Here Began My Childhood"

The new exhibition in the temporary exhibition space complements the collective biographies and recounts what happened to child survivors at the end of the war and in its aftermath. The exhibition highlights additional human and historical aspects which shaped the fate of these children and which, till now, have not received due attention in Holocaust remembrance educational programs.
