Join us for these events at Jewish Museum Milwaukee:

Thursday May 17th, 2018 10:00 am - 7:00 pm
May 'Thirds-day' (Third Thursday)
Jewish Museum Milwaukee, Milwaukee WI

Did you know on the Third Thursday of each month, Jewish Museum Milwaukee is open late? That’s right – we stay open until 7:00 pm so you have extra time to explore our exhibits! Stick around because immediately following ‘Thirdsday’ we are presenting “Censored Realities: Holocaust Correspondence from Ghettos and Camps” with Holocaust postal historian Justin Gordon.

Thursday May 17th, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Censored Realities: Holocaust Correspondence from Ghettos and Camps
Jewish Museum Milwaukee, Milwaukee WI

Justin Gordon will discuss his research and publication Holocaust Postal History: Harrowing Journeys Revealed through the Letters and Cards of the Victims. The lines of the correspondence he studied, are seemingly ordinary—until you realize that they were written in the darkest days of the Holocaust under tyrannical censorship.
