On January 14, 2019, students from the “Holocaust and Its Impact” and “U.S. History since 1865” classes braved the winter conditions to visit the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust. With generous support from the Office of Campus Programming, Extended Education, and the Dean’s Office of Arts and Humanities, these students spent the day enriching their course studies with a tour of artefacts and an opportunity to dialogue with a 92-year-old survivor of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.
History professor Jenny Andreotti and Religious Studies professor Liora Gubkin prepared students for the visit through their course studies.
Megan Briley, one of the Holocaust course students who visited, reflected on her experience. “This trip made a huge impact on me and my understanding of the Holocaust. It is so horrifying to realize that so many individuals suffered in unimaginable ways during the Holocaust. The most impactful part of the museum tour was hearing from the Holocaust survivor and learning her stories about her time at Auschwitz. It was heart breaking to hear about how she lost her family and how she watched her sister get put into a different line, not understanding her fate. She also spoke about the good people that helped her during that time and I found that especially moving that she remembered the good people during the horror that she had to endure. The museum, the Holocaust survivor, and the tour really put the experiences of the Holocaust into perspective.”
