A new museum telling the story of local Holocaust survivors has opened. L’dor Vador: From Generation to Generation, the Holocaust Museum and Educated Centre is located within Kingston synagogue Beth Israel Congregation. The museum is comprised of a permanent exhibit of Family Trees that illustrate the stories of ten children who survived the Nazi genocide of Jews during World War 2, and how they built their lives in Kingston. The trees were created by students of the former Queen Elizabeth Collegiate and Vocational Institute.
Teacher Pam Simon who spearheaded the project says, “The goal of creating this museum space is to not only educate students, but also to educate History and English teachers on how to teach the Holocaust.”
The exhibit also includes a surviving Torah Scroll from the destruction of European Jewry.
