Program Description

Come learn about World War II and the Holocaust at the nation's oldest Holocaust museum. After your tour, you'll also have the rare opportunity to listen to and interact with a Holocaust Survivor.

Each student tour includes:

  • An introduction to the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust’s history
  • An introduction to the Holocaust and its main events
  • A tour of the Museum collection
  • A Holocaust Survivor talk
  • Q&A with a Holocaust Survivor

Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust (LAMOTH) has a two-fold mission that has remained constant since its inception in 1961: commemoration and education.


LAMOTH dedicates itself as a primary source institution, one that commemorates those who perished and honors those who survived by housing the precious artifacts that miraculously weathered the Holocaust.


LAMOTH provides free Holocaust education to the public, particularly students from underfunded schools and underserved communities. We are committed to providing opportunities for dialogue with Holocaust Survivors, who are the living embodiment of history.
