Public Awareness/Education ( Human Rights Issues )


The center provides human rights groups services to individuals in Los Angeles County. Services include cultural heritage groups, ethnic advocacy groups, hate crimes prevention, history museums, international human rights programs, outreach programs, public awareness/education and a special library collection. Geographic restrictions apply for some outreach programs.

Services are dedicated to preserving the memory of the Holocaust.

The Museum of Tolerance provides docent-led tours as well as presentations by survivors of the Holocaust who speak about their own experiences for schools and community groups which are located within a 50 mile radius of the center. Lectures about the Holocaust and human rights-related topics and classes about the history of the Holocaust period are also available to the public through the Jewish Studies Institute.

The center implements a social action agenda internationally. It takes positions on issues and events and encourages support through coalitions with other groups, interactions with public and private agencies and officials, and the media. It primarily responds to issues that deal with human rights violations such as anti-semitism, bigotry, hate crimes, genocide, prosecution of Nazi war criminals and terrorism.

The center collects and maintains over 50,000 photographs, thousands of documents, diaries, letters, artifacts and memorabilia, artwork, and rare books with primary emphasis on the Holocaust, genocide, anti-semitism, and Jewish communities around the world. Some books and materials can be checked out from the library for three weeks at a time.
