Bringing History and Culture Alive

About the Project

About the Artifact Experience

Ordinary, everyday objects cross time and space to the here and now but they remain connected to people, memories, and events large and small. A teddy bear, a toothbrush, a pair of spectacles – they all represent a life with a story. The Artifact Experience is an innovative way to connect youth to local history and culture and teach the importance of tolerance in society.

As opportunities for students to connect with first-generation Holocaust survivors are becoming increasingly rare, the Artifact Experience will offer a new, innovative way to bring history alive for students. In conjunction with a museum visit, students will learn about a first-generation Holocaust survivor through a hands-on experience with meaningful artifacts. Following this experience, students will see a 30-minute video about this survivor and hear how these items impacted their life. Our goal is to connect students to Holocaust history in an engaging way. Objects connect us to history and tell us stories about our past. Artifacts play vital roles in educating students about history and tolerance.

Donations made through power2give be matched dollar for dollar by the City of Atlanta and will cover these costs:

• Archival research and documentation: $2,000
• Development of Lesson Plans: $1,500
• Sturdy boxes for objects, able to travel: $1,000
• Fabrication of high-quality reproductions of artifacts to give students the opportunity to learn through physical interaction with objects: $6,500

Archival objects are tangible connections to our past and meaningful tools for engaging students with history. Many of the Holocaust and WWII-era artifacts we plan to replicate were donated to the museum by local Atlanta families, and carry deeply personal, and relatable stories other objects will be created to supply items referenced in the story.
