American Liberators of the Holocaust

Join Museum educators to discuss the few Americans who saw the atrocities of the Holocaust with their own eyes. The Allied soldiers who first entered the Nazi death and labor camps scattered across Europe are called Liberators. Watch as students from New Orleans interview the new interactive biography featured in the Museum’s new special installation, Dimensions in Testimony: The Story of Alan Moskin. Mr. Moskin was drafted into the military at 18 and served in the United States Army during World War II. In May 1945, his Company participated in the Gunskirchen Concentration Camp’s liberation, a Mauthausen sub-camp. This webinar is appropriate for grades six and up.
