Diaries of Humanity Holocaust Exhibit

The Diaries of Humanity Holocaust exhibit is a collection of diaries or handwritten notes from a variety of areas in Europe during the Holocaust. The collection was gathered to better understand the power of the written word, and that not all individuals who were affected by World War II were German or Polish.

The exhibit, made up of scanned diary pages and letters from the Ghetto Fighters House Museum, includes some archival material never released to the public.

Together with the Diaries of Humanity Holocaust exhibit, you’ll receive a study guide specifically developed to be used by teachers and educators to provide context for the exhibit. The study guide offers lesson rationale and objectives, as well as connections to common core state standards. The suggested lessons and activities are interdisciplinary, and can be adapted for a variety of audiences.

The exhibit rental includes:

  • Seven large plexiglass panels, each 24” x 36”
  • Two black and white cut-out wall hangings
  • Audio recording (on CD) of one of the diaries
  • Hanging instructions, screws and plastic anchors
  • Custom designed study guide for this exhibit

This Holocaust exhibit is available for one month rentals at a fee of $800.00, plus shipping and handling.
