Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education
Log Number: MA-15-19-0011-19
The Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education will design, fabricate, and install a new exhibition, "To Bear Witness - Extraordinary Lives." The new exhibit will document and narrate the stories of a diverse group of refugees with the goal of enhancing empathy and building a more inclusive community. The project team will capture, share, and preserve the stories of 10 to 12 people from varied backgrounds who left their homelands to become refugees in the United States. The exhibit will include interactive elements, photographs, narratives of each person's story, and short videos about the life of each refugee. The museum will develop and present programs for adults, middle and high school students, and university students.
