My Interview with Madene Shachar—Museum Educator at The Ghetto Fighters Museum

Yesterday I had the privilege to interview Madene Shachar, Museum Educator at The Ghetto Fighters Museum.

The Ghetto Fighters’ House – Itzhak Katzenelson Holocaust and Jewish Resistance Heritage Museum– known as the “House” – is not only the first Holocaust museum in the world but also the first of its kind to be founded by Holocaust survivors. The museum was established in 1949 to educate people about the Holocaust during World War II, emphasizing the bravery, spiritual triumph and incredible ability of Holocaust survivors and the fighters of the revolt to rebuild their lives in a new country about which they had dreamed—the State of Israel.

We spoke about the museum as well as the current situation in Israel.
