ATL Jewish History Lives! The Lodz G-etto/Camp Album!. The Breman and Oakland Cemetary, are two great places to learn about the History of Atlanta's Jewish Community. The history area section, you can trace your family's beginning's, like mine, to the 1860's. Especially all the immigrant merchant's we had, including the Rich Brother's. An empire was born here, and helped me pay my way through Georgia State University. The Holocaust area, is very moving, and sad, but has helped our community to be stronger than ever. A rotating exhibit, always brings new light on The Jewish Experience. Currently, The Lodz G-etto/Camp Album, is on display. Naysayers, come here, and learn/ see what happened to Six Million of God's People!
This moving Midtown museum offers a revealing look at Atlanta's Jewish heritage..
Established in 1983, the 17,000-square-foot museum is dedicated to the Jewish experience, with an emphasis on the Atlanta Jewish community. The museum has three exhibition spaces: the permanent Heritage and Holocaust galleries, and another with special exhibits in rotation. Historical and contemporary exhibitions in the galleries combine with an interactive display for children, community archives, a genealogy center and a library to create an important local resource.
The two core galleries hold the museum's permanent exhibits. Designed by a Holocaust survivor, the Holocaust Gallery's eerie space re-creates the atmosphere of the Holocaust years through stark symbolic reminders of the time. "Absence of Humanity: The Holocaust Years" explores the Holocaust through the story of Atlanta's Jews of European heritage. "Legacy Project," an interactive multimedia system, offers a look into the lives of Holocaust survivors who settled in Atlanta.
