About The William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum
A celebrated humanitarian whose awards include the Abe Goldstein Humanitarian Award of the Anti-Defamation League, the late Bill Breman had already made countless contributions to his community by 1990. Yet one wish of his had still gone unfulfilled: creating a museum to preserve Atlanta's Jewish history and culture. So Breman donated a generous sum to the Atlanta Jewish Federation, kickstarting a six-year journey that culminated with the opening of The William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum in 1996.
As its name suggests, the museum's exhibitions focus on the heritage and Holocaust experience of Atlanta's Jewish citizens through arts, history, and identity. Designed by survivor Ben Hirsch, Absence of Humanity: The Holocaust Years, 1933–1945 delves into the events, aftermath, and historical context of the Holocaust through photographs, personal memorabilia, and videotaped interviews with survivors living in Atlanta. In the Weinberg Center for Holocaust Education, visitors can explore the universal themes of human dignity and diversity through the personal stories of Atlanta's Holocaust survivors. The museum is also home to the Cuba Family Archives for Southern Jewish History, the largest repository of documents, photographs, artifacts, and oral histories pertaining to Jewish life in Georgia and Alabama. Beyond the mainstay exhibits, special exhibitions feature topics ranging from mah jongg to the artwork of Maurice Sendak. The museum's events are constantly changing and eclectic, encompassing everything from film screenings to group discussions.
