Preserving Quarantine History

Archives hold the history and the stories of people, organizations and events from the past in order to share and learn from in perpetuity. Jewish Museum Milwaukee is the repository for Jewish life in Wisconsin. 

We collect and preserve, photographs, oral histories, objects, documents and ephemera from the community in order to be shared with students, scholars and families now and far into the future and we interpret these artifacts through many of the special exhibits we present.

Today we are all living through an unprecedented time and your experiences will be important to future scholars, historians and family members looking back on this time in this place. JMM asks that you help us preserve the community’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic by sharing your thoughts, poems, and pictures of your artwork, videos, oral histories, or any other meaningful documentation of your experience or reaction to our current circumstances.

Remember, your stories are our history.

*We ask that all submissions be done through electronic means as we are not in the office.
