The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies offers the possibility of a facilitated lecture or discussion following the visit of a college or university group to the Museum’s permanent or special exhibitions. These debriefings are structured around a particular group’s needs and are led by a Museum staff member or fellow. Debriefs must be requested four to six weeks in advance due to staffing and space restrictions.
The request for a debrief does not include reserved passes to the Museum’s Permanent Exhibition. Passes must be reserved through our online ticketing system or at the museum the day of your visit. Get more information about passes.
