Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education Preservation Assessment

A general preservation assessment and training workshop, along with the purchase of preservation supplies, to improve the care of a museum collection related to the Holocaust.  Included are books, photographs, newspapers, audiovisual materials, and some 1,500 artifacts from Nazi-era Germany, World War II, and the postwar period, many of them contributed by survivors of concentration camps or their family members. 


Rockland Community College (RCC), in partnership with the Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education, applies for the NEH Preservation Assistance Grant for Smaller Institutions. RCC will provide institutional support as the Holocaust Museum undergoes a preservation assessment and implements its recommendations. The Museum’s collection comprises approximately 1,500 objects, many of them rare artifacts such as unique survivor testimonies, photographs, and Nazi weaponry and propaganda. These support the Museum’s vital work of promoting tolerance and memorializing Holocaust victims. With the Museum planning a new facility on RCC’s campus, an assessment will guide the care of the collection and inform the design of the facility’s collections storage space. For a small institution without a collections manager on staff, the assessment and resulting report will provide guidance for staff on collections care best practices and the development of appropriate policies and procedures.
