Where grass and trees now grow, once were scenes of unspeakable horror — killing fields where more than 2 million people were murdered before the creation of concentration camps. Holocaust by Bullets documents this lesser-known side of the Holocaust with eye-witness testimonies, photographs and archival materials. Sponsored by Bader Philanthropies, Inc., they Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, and Herb Kohl Philanthropies. Museum visit includes exhibit tour, workshop with Holocaust Educator, and optional presentation by Holocaust survivor or family member of a survivor.
Appropriate for HIGH SCHOOL students only.
*Cost: Free transportation for Milwaukee county schools. Free admission to Holocaust by Bullets, Fabric of Survival and Jewish Museum Milwaukee permanent exhibits.
