Identification Cards and Personal Stories

The sheer number of victims in the Holocaust challenges easy comprehension. When visitors enter the Museum’s Permanent Exhibition, they receive an ID card telling the true story of a person who lived during the Holocaust. Using these individual profiles, show your students that behind the massive statistics are real people—children and parents, neighbors and friends—and a diversity of personal experience.
