Archiving New England Holocaust history

Download Audio

For decades, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has been collecting and archiving items belonging to those who died in the Nazi genocide, and those who survived. Today, there's a renewed and urgent push to gather the items before it's too late and those survivors are gone.

Part of this push is happening on Wednesday, when the Museum will host a virtual event to encourage New Englanders to find and donate their pieces of history.
Former Boston City Councilor Mike Ross will host that event. He joins us along with Fred Wasserman, the acquisitions curator for the National Institute for Holocaust Documentation of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

This segment aired on March 7, 2022.
