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 permanent and special exhibits!

Highlights of the permanent exhibit include Jake’s Deli, a sculpture by Holocaust survivor Magda Watts, Golda Meir’s time in Milwaukee, the Settlement Cookbook and “The Prophet Jeremiah,” a wall-sized tapestry by artist Marc Chagall.

On the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau Camp, Jewish Museum is honored to exhibit The Girl in the Diary: Searching for Rywka from the Łódź Ghetto, on loan from the Galicia Museum in Kraków, Poland.

In 1945 a Soviet doctor found a notebook in the liberated Auschwitz-Birkenau Camp. It was a diary written by the teenaged Rywka Lipszyc in the Łódź Ghetto between October 1943 and April 1944 — the testament of an orthodox Jewish girl who lost her siblings and parents, but never lost hope despite moments of doubt. Selected excerpts of the diary are supplemented by expert commentary from historians, doctors, psychologists and rabbis, projected photographs of the Ghetto and precious artifacts from Poland and the United States Memorial Holocaust Museum lend important context of the times and events Rywka refers to in her diary.
