Register for the Holocaust EFT

 

Join The National WWII Museum on an Electronic Field Trip to learn about the Holocaust through firsthand accounts and testimonies of child victims and survivors.

Students participating in this program will have the opportunity to explore the newest Liberation Pavilion galleries at The National WWII Museum and artifacts from our collection, as well as Holocaust sites across the Atlantic. Entire classrooms can get involved with this live broadcast by submitting questions in real time to our educators and experts, and by participating in our live polls throughout the Electronic Field Trip to test your history knowledge along with other students.
