Commemoration

LAMOTH dedicates itself as a primary source institution, one that commemorates those who perished and honors those who survived by housing the precious artifacts that miraculously weathered the Holocaust era.

Education

LAMOTH provides free Holocaust education to the public, particularly students from underfunded schools and underserved communities. We guarantee dialogue with an actual Survivor, a living embodiment of history.
