Staten Island Holocaust Center Announces Partnership with Ganzach Museum & Amud Aish Memorial Museum

Staten Island, New York – The Staten Island Holocaust Center is extremely proud to announce that it is partnering with the Ganzach Museum in Israel and Amud Aish Memorial Museum in Brooklyn to bring unique artifacts from these two esteemed organizations together right here in Staten Island.

The opportunity to partner with Ganzach Museum and Amud Aish Memorial Museum is yet another example of how the Staten Island Holocaust Center continues to offer opportunities for the community in Staten Island to learn from the past, in order to make a difference in the future through Holocaust education.

Located in Bnei Brak, Israel, the Ganzach Kiddush Hashem (Kiddush Hashem Archive) was founded in 1964 by the late author and Holocaust researcher, Rabbi Moshe Prager z”l, with the aim of commemorating the destroyed Jewish world, the heroism of the Jewish soul during the Holocaust, and the miracle of the Jewish People’s rebirth in Israel. The archive focusses on stories of maintaining moral and Jewish values during the Holocaust, and includes approximately 300,000 photographs, 2,000,000 documents, 40,000 textbooks, and 2000 video testimonies

Through its collections, Ganzach Museum has developed relevant and engaging educational programming, supported by both Israel’s Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Culture and Sport.

Amud Aish Memorial Museum in Brooklyn, New York is a living memorial to all the victims of the Holocaust. The museum’s mission is to present the victim experience, with special emphasis on the perspectives of observant Jewish communities. It is the only Holocaust museum to focus on the role of faith and identity within the broader context of the annihilation of European Jewry. Amud Aish Memorial Museum and its educational division, the Kleinman Holocaust Education Center, have emerged as invaluable resources for educational programming, traveling exhibits, Orthodox specific wartime archives and new scholarship.

Staten Island Holocaust Center

More than 50,000 Holocaust survivors live in the New York Metropolitan area, with hundreds on Staten Island. In every borough of New York City, there is a place dedicated to remembering the Holocaust – a place where you can learn about that dark time in history, the people it affected, and reflect upon its lasting impact on the world today. Staten Island was the only borough without a building dedicated to remembering the Holocaust. We have formed the Staten Island Holocaust Center (SIHC). We have rectified that situation. This is an important project considering the current climate of intolerance, the existence of Holocaust deniers, and rising anti-Semitism. Now, after years of planning and effort, we are proud to announce the launching of an exciting important new project for Staten Island. SIHC is a not-for-profit corporation under New York law and have received 501c(3) status from the Internal Revenue Code. It is our hope that the Staten Island Holocaust Center will become a place where history can be remembered and interpreted, ensuring that the atrocities of our past will not be forgotten or repeated.

    Yo I read there were not like dozens but tens of THOUSANDS of Nazi camps. Waaaaaaay more than I had ever imagined.

    You have to admit it’s clear that G-d saved the Jews. Sometimes through the kindness of others but definitely.

    Antisemitism is on the rise. Not imaginary, this is fact. If you’re a Jew, be aware and know there are haters out there.
