Temple Shalom opens museum, tribute to Holocaust survivors

Temple Shalom of Succasunna will unveil a memorial that tells stories of the Holocaust on Sunday, April 16, at 11 a.m. The event will open a museum, sponsored by the Anne Frank Center USA, that will showcase personal accounts of survivors, highlighting themes of resilience and determination, and preserving an important part of history.

In 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. Visitors will also be able to hear recorded interviews conducted by Temple Shalom’s Rabbi Inna Serebro-Litvak.

Congregant Charleen Green, who curated the materials for the museum, said she was proud to assemble these sensitive photos and documents for the public to see. The museum is a place where children can learn about the Holocaust; its biggest impact comes through the personal experiences that survivors shared with their families.

Rabbi Serebro-Litvak will lead tours through the museum. Entry is free; individuals, schools, and organizations are encouraged to schedule a visit by calling 973-584-5666, ext. 5, or emailing rabbiserebro-litvak@
