Holocaust History Museums Tour
– FREE Livestream Program via Zoom!October 4, 2020
About this Event
Washington, DC History & Culture, a non-profit community organization, is presenting an encore performance of our popular online/virtual history of the Holocaust – including the story of Anne Frank.
Washington, DC History & Culture is an independent organization, not affiliated with any other entity. Our free, educational program is being provided as a public service and tells the story of noteworthy historical items found at three museums:
– The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (Washington, DC)
– The Virginia Holocaust Museum (Richmond, Virginia)
– The Anne Frank House (Amsterdam, Netherlands)
Our tour-type program will provide a brief overview of each of the three museums and prominent items from their collections. Because this is an online/virtual event, you will be able to “visit” all four museums in a single day – and from the comfort of your own home!
Please note that this program is presented solely by Washington, DC History, and is not done in partnership with any of the museums listed above.
Your host for this program is Robert Kelleman, the founder/director of the non-profit community organization Washington, DC History & Culture. Robert earned an art history degree from the University of Michigan, spent the first two years of his career at the Detroit Institute of Arts, and has previously made numerous trips to the museums we will be discussing as well as many other Holocaust-related sites. This program is complementary to the “Anne Frank & Holocaust” program that Robert presents online and in Washington, DC. Robert is not employed by any of the museums we will be discussing.
This educational and entertaining program is open to all regardless of age, geographic location, etc. and since it is an online/virtual event via Zoom you can connect from anywhere in the world.
This is a FREE program – voluntary donations accepted to support our non-profit community programs.

Zoom Connection Suggestions:
Connecting to Zoom a few minutes early is strongly recommended.
This is a visual presentation so the bigger device screen that you can use the better.
To join the event simply click the Zoom link that is emailed separately and follow the instructions.
If clicking the link doesn’t work you can try copying and pasting it instead.
Depending on the device Zoom may work better in some browsers/devices than others – if one doesn’t work try another.
If you are disconnected for any reason just reconnect.
When all else fails read and follow the directions. : )
