Virtual Visit: The Museum of Tolerance

Tuesday, June 29, 2021

How can we create the changes we seek? We’ll explore the connections from yesterday to today.

For the first time, we’re taking a virtual trip to the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles for a special virtual tour: Tolerancenter: Contemporary Lessons.

A museum educator will lead us through some of the Museum of Tolerance’s most moving interactive exhibits examining themes such as dynamics of discrimination, personal responsibility and democracy and diversity. 

The session is designed to draw connections from history to current events and to spark personal reflection on how to create the changes we seek. 

Conversation will focus on the impact of hate and hate crimes, media literacy and personal responsibility.

This experience is recommended for Grades 7-Adult.

About The Museum of Tolerance
Located in Los Angeles, The Museum of Tolerance (MOT) is the educational arm of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, an internationally renowned Jewish human rights organization. The only museum of its kind in the world, the MOT is dedicated to challenging visitors to understand the Holocaust in both historic and contemporary contexts and confront all forms of prejudice and discrimination in our world today.

Established in 1993, the MOT has welcomed over five million visitors, mostly middle and high school students. Visitors become witnesses to history and explore the dynamics of bigotry and discrimination that are still embedded in society today. Through interactive exhibits, special events, and customized programs for youths and adults, the Museum engages visitors’ hearts and minds, while challenging them to assume personal responsibility for positive change.

This free event received partial funding support from the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
