Issues of the Holocaust
Although the Alaska Jewish Museum is not per se a Holocaust museum, the stories we tell are often intertwined with the the historical events of that time, along with the memories and accounts of survivors.
The following is a quote that inspires our work at AJM:
“When human dignity is in jeapordy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevent. Whenever men or women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must, at that moment, become the center of the universe.” - Elie Wiesel
