About the Museum
The Museum is New York's primary institution of public education about modern
Jewish history and the Holocaust. The Museum tells the moving story of 20th
century Jewish life from the perspective of those who lived it. Weaving together
personal experiences and world events, it paints an evocative portrait of a
people and an indomitable spirit. Created as a living memorial to the victims
of the Holocaust, the Museum honors those who died by celebrating their lives
and legacy. It conveys a message of memory and hope that is of universal significance.
The two sections of the All of Ours to Fight For- Americans in the Second
World War teacher's guide augment and extend the exhibition workbook and
museum visit. The Resources section provides a chronology, glossary, bibliography,
list of films and websites. The Activities section contains a series of questions
and activities aligned with National Standards and New York State Core Curriculum.
