The “From Memory to History” Holocaust Exhibit will be remounted

from September 7th – November 22nd

at the Alex Aidekman Family Jewish Community Campus in Whippany.


Last year the Holocaust Council of MetroWest developed a highly moving and very meaningful exhibit called “From Memory to History.”  It presented the stories of 50 Holocaust Survivors or Rescuers from the MetroWest area – each represented on a door-sized panel with pictures and narrative.  Students from public, private and parochial schools throughout Northern NJ, as well as adult groups, came to view the exhibit and learn about the Holocaust through the stories of real people who survived and were able to rebuild their lives.  Each group met a Survivor and heard his/her story. 


Now we are inviting you to become a docent. If you were a docent last year, you know what a powerful experience it will be. Your role will be to lead groups (mostly students) on a tour of the panels and learn and be prepared to tell 3-4 Survivors’ stories.  We ask that you come to one training session and be available on one week-day/week (T/W/Th) or an occasional evening or Sunday.  

            Training sessions will be held:

            Wednesday morning, September 6th from 10:00 – 12:00 noon (with lunch)


            Thursday evening, September 14th from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.  (with snacks and dessert)

            (Choose 1– attendance is required)


If you have already responded, thank you.

If you have not responded and would like to be a docent, please let me know which training session you choose to attend.  We look forward to hearing from you.
