UNITED STATES HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM ANNOUNCES
THE MALTZ FAMILY NAMES THE MUSEUM’S EXHIBITION PROGRAM
WASHINGTON, DC - The Milton and Tamar Maltz Family Foundation of Cleveland, OH, recently joined the Museum’s Chairman’s Circle with an additional $6 million gift to the Museum to name its acclaimed exhibition program.
“No other institution brings the lessons of the Holocaust to a broader range of people in the US and worldwide than the US Holocaust Memorial Museum,” said Milton Maltz. “The Museum has the unmatched ability to develop exhibitions that not only educate but inspire people from all walks of life. The lessons of the Holocaust are more relevant than ever. That’s why we wanted to ensure this program in perpetuity.”
“The Museum’s exhibitions are the backbone of our institution and our ability to have impact,'' said Museum Director Sara Bloomfield. “Milt and Tamar’s exceptional gift will ensure that we can continue to develop innovative exhibitions that will allow future generations to encounter, understand, and learn from this history. With antisemitism and other forms of hate on the rise, this work is not only important, but urgent.”
Mr. Maltz founded the Malrite Communications Group, Inc. in 1956 and served as its Chairman and CEO until he sold the company in 1998. Under his direction, Malrite became one of the most successful operators of radio and television properties in the country. Mr. Maltz has been using his years of entertainment experience and expertise to develop distinctive entertainment and educational projects around the country, including the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., and the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Beachwood, Ohio.
About the Campaign
This gift supports the Museum’s $1 billion campaign, Never Again: What You Do Matters. The Museum is making critical investments to keep Holocaust memory alive as a relevant, transformative force in the 21st century.
