The Holocaust Museum is partnering with a variety of community organizations to present some exciting programs!
Do the Right Thing
In collaboration with the City of Naples, Naples Police Department and The Boxcar Foundation, the Museum is participating in "Do the Right Thing", a national program. Through a local initiative, the program recognizes the efforts of young people to behave in such a way as to positively impact the lives of others. Read more about the effort in the City of Naples.
Collier County Jewish Book Festival
Each year, the Museum is the sponsor for Festival events featuring Holocaust and World War II-themed books.
In 2016, the sponsored authors came for a tour of the Museum with Festival Founder and Director Ted Epstein. A school group happened to be at the Museum, and the authors were invited to speak to the students. It turned out to be a wonderful encounter for all, in that it was the first time the authors had spoken to a school group, and the first time the students had met authors!
