Our trained docents are able to accommodate groups of various sizes and often guide groups of students from Oregon and SW Washington schools.
There is no charge for this service, however we do request a donation of $25 to cover our administrative expenses. No group will be turned away because of lack of funds.
Some funding is available towards transportation and teacher substitutes to schools unable to otherwise afford to visit the Oregon Holocaust Memorial.
The Oregon Holocaust Memorial, dedicated August 29, 2004, serves as a permanent reminder of the Holocaust, where millions were systematically murdered by the Nazi government of Germany from 1933 to 1945. They were murdered because of their political or religious beliefs, physical and mental disabilities, sexual orientation, or assistance to the persecuted. By teaching the lessons of the Holocaust and visiting the Memorial, we pay homage to those who lost their lives during that period. Further, there is hope that we can encourage future generations to be accepting of all people, regardless of personal choices.
