A closer look at a difficult time

Two survivors. Six chapters. Thirty-three stories.

The Lodz Ghetto: Strength of Hope online exhibition gives you a closer look at the different aspects of all that was happening in Lodz Ghetto. Learn how Bono Wiener and Abram Goldberg resisted the Nazis – and found meaning during this difficult time.

The exhibition covers:

    • Bono and Abram’s experiences
    • The Lodz Ghetto itself
    • The control of information
    • Nazi terror
    • Hope and resistance
  • Preparing for your visit

  • Child Safety Commitment

    At the MHM, we are committed to providing a child-safe environment. We support and respect all children and young people – and their safety and wellbeing are our priority.

    Our practices are inspired by Holocaust victim Henryk Goldszmit, who published the ‘Declaration of Children’s Rights’ in 1928 under the pen name Janusz Korczak.

Despite not being in the museum physically, the students were still able to learn about and 'interact' with the artefacts. They came into the next class ready to discuss these artefacts and how they've enhanced or challenged our historical understanding of the Holocaust"
