First Person: Conversations with Survivors

The Museum’s First Person program enables visitors to hear Holocaust survivors tell their life stories in their own words, uniting personal experience with history in a way that is extraordinary in its immediacy and power. Each hour-long program features a live interview between journalist Bill Benson and a survivor, followed by a question-and-answer session.

First Person is free and open to the public. Programs are held in the Rubinstein Auditorium; due to security precautions, please allow extra time for delays entering the Museum building. Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) is available. All programs begin at 11 a.m. and usually last one hour. Doors to the auditorium open at 10:45 a.m. Programs take place every Wednesday and Thursday from March 18 through August 13, 2015.
