Women’s History Month Tour & Museum Experience
March 10 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
In honor of Women’s History Month, join us for a guided tour focused on women’s experiences during the Holocaust on March 10, at 1:30 p.m. Through themes of defiance, risk, loss, and love, we will explore incredible stories of our local survivor community through their words and artifacts.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to experience newly launched testimony of Eva Schloss within the Dimensions in Testimony exhibit. Born Eva Geiringer in Vienna, Austria, Eva and her family fled to the Netherlands after Germany annexed Austria in 1938. They were neighbors of Anne Frank’s family during their time in Amsterdam. After the Nazis occupied the Netherlands, Eva and her family went into hiding. The family was later betrayed and sent to Westerbork Concentration Camp and then to Auschwitz II-Birkenau. After the war, Eva and her mother moved back to Amsterdam and reconnected with Otto Frank, whom her mother married — making Eva Anne Frank’s posthumous stepsister.

Admission to the museum is free with registration to the event.
