The Art and Artifacts Branch of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum contains more than 10,000 objects that document and illustrate the history of the Holocaust and the period immediately before and after it took place. These include:
The Art and Artifacts Branch collects and identifies objects that tell the story of individuals, families, and groups that experienced the Holocaust so that they may be used for research and display. The window of opportunity is closing to locate and gather this material from individuals who experienced the Holocaust first-hand. The curators are making every effort to collect as much of this historical legacy as possible.
The Art and Artifacts Branch seeks to augment its collection of original objects, textiles, art, books, and albums that were created and/or used during the Holocaust. If you have such objects and are willing to donate them to the Museum, please fill out the online form, or e-mail email@example.com, or call (202) 488-2649.
