Donating Artifacts to the Museum: What You Need To Know

The Virginia Holocaust Museum is actively seeking materials from survivors, liberators and eyewitnesses to preserve the memory of the Holocaust. Artifacts donated to the Museum are accessible for groups, and researchers, and displayed within our permanent exhibits for educational purposes.

The Virginia Holocaust Museum only collects material from those with a Virginia connection; most commonly a survivor who settled in Virginia after the Holocaust or a soldier originally from the Commonwealth. The Museum no longer accepts Nazi material culture, which includes items like flags, armbands, daggers, and other military items.

The more common items we collect include:

  • Artwork
  • Books
  • Documents, Correspondence, Diaries
  • Personal Effects
  • Photographs
  • Sound and Video Recordings
  • Textiles
  • Three-Dimensional Objects
