The Faktor Investigation – Solving the Mystery at the Museum

The Holocaust Museum has opened a new exhibit for the summer: The Faktor Investigation: Finding the Story in the Details. Using a collection of documents related to Stanislaus and Sala Faktor (later Stanley and Sally Factor), the Museum has created its first interactive exhibit that encourages visitors to be “citizen historians” and trace the experiences of the family.

Young people from Grace Place were the first to participate in this interactive experience.  Here is what the Naples Daily News had to say:

The Faktor Investigation

The exhibit was created with support from The Jewish Federation of Collier County and The League Club.  The summer program, and subsequent afterschool experiences, are supported through grants from The League Club and the Naples Children & Education Foundation, founders of the Naples Winter Wine Festival.

The Naples Children & Education Foundation is committed to supporting charitable programs that improve the physical, emotional and education lives of underprivileged and at-risk children in Collier County.  Its primary fundraiser, the Naples Winter Wine Festival, is the largest global event of its kind, and has raised in excess of $135 million in its first 15 years for annual grants to over 40 beneficiary organizations and 7 strategic initiatives.

Ellen Vanderburg, Vice President/Community and Chair of the Civic Involvement Committee of The League Club, said, “We are pleased to award these grants to 30 non-profit agencies that work to strengthen our community and raise the quality of life for all residents in Collier and Lee counties.”  The League Club, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization of women in Southwest Florida strengthening communities through fellowship, education, volunteerism and philanthropy. The League Club is open to women who have been or still are active members of a Junior League that is a member of the Association of Junior Leagues International.
