Living History

Historical societies, archives and museums not only hold in trust the physical evidence of eras past, but the stories of the people, places and events that have shaped our communities and our lives. Join us as we uncover these stories, often hidden away in places you'd least expect or drive by regularly - ranging from the basement of a college classroom building to a prominent historical society in a well-heeled Atlanta neighborhood.

Living History is far from a buzzword at the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum where Holocaust survivors and their children regularly offer testimony of the horrors of the Nazi Holocaust, and the resilience of survivors. Henry Lewin, a child of Holocaust survivors, recounts his parents' story of survival. We'll also join a guided tour of "Absence of Humanity: The Holocaust Years, 1933-1945." Museum archives director Jeremy Katz also offers highlights of "Eighteen Artifacts: A Story of Jewish Atlanta" and he takes us into the archives, as well as into the vault, to examine items most museum visitors don't see.
