Succasunna shul opens a tribute museum to Holocaust survivors
Temple Shalom of Succasunna will unveil its “Museum — A Tribute to Holocaust Survivors,” an exhibit sponsored by the Anne Frank Center USA, on April 16, at 11 a.m. It will showcase personal stories of survivors, highlighting themes of resilience and determination. The stories are told by their families, and the exhibit aims to preserve the history for future generations.
The museum is the first Holocaust museum in Morris County presented in a synagogue. Viewers will be able to see documents and remembrances collected from congregants whose parents or grandparents were survivors, as well as hear interviews conducted and recorded by Rabbi Inna Serebro-Litvak.
Charleen Green, a Temple Shalom congregant, curated the materials. According to Ms. Green, “This is a very important project because the biggest impact comes through the personal artifacts and experiences that Holocaust survivors share with their families.”
Rabbi Inna Serebro-Litvak will lead the tours of the museum.
Entry to the public is free and individuals, schools, and organizations are welcome to schedule a visit. For information, call (973) 584-5666, ext. 1, or email [email protected]
