Holocaust Museum LA | Inspire Humanity Through Truth


Holocaust Museum LA is the first survivor-founded and oldest Holocaust Museum in the United States. Its genesis dates to the 1960s, when a group of survivors met and discovered that each of them had a photograph, document, or personal item from before the war. They decided that these artifacts needed a permanent home where they could be displayed safely and in perpetuity. They also wanted a place to memorialize their loved ones who perished and help to educate the public. Founded in 1961, Holocaust Museum LA is the only cultural institution in Los Angeles with a sole focus on the horrific impact and the enormity of the Holocaust that is free for students. Through customized tours, artifact-rich exhibitions, creative educational programs, and intergenerational conversations with survivors, the Museum teaches students and visitors to think critically about the lessons of the Holocaust and its social relevance today. 

Internship Position:

The internship will take place in the Collections Department of the museum.

The student will participate in an ongoing organizational project to preserve the existing data, perform new research and make collections available online via a new collections management system (CMS). The internship will allow them to learn more about collections management, including metadata and cataloging standards, as well as allowing the development of the student’s own research skills using resources and assistance provided by the museum.

The exact tasks will be coordinated individually for each student according to his/her abilities and the needs of the institute.
