LIVE Virtual Field Trips

Exhibit: "Finding Light in the Darkness" - Grades 6 and up.

Through artifacts and stories from local Holocaust survivors, students will begin to understand the history of the Holocaust and that their choices make a difference. A live knowledgeable docent will highlight key stories, artifacts, images, and pivotal events featured in the exhibit. Students will be able to ask questions and will have opportunities for further independent research. 

Virtual Field Trips will take place using Zoom. (We will do our best to support other video platforms.) Docents can tailor the material to your class. Minimum time commitment is 45 minutes. 

*Tours available in Spanish by special request.
