How do we move forward from the past while vowing to never forget? The architecture of the Contemporary Jewish Museum (The CJM) is a testament to history and resilience: it is a celebration of life and strength designed by architect Daniel Libeskind, a child of Holocaust survivors, with deeply embedded Jewish symbolism and meaning. A first-hand testimony by a Holocaust survivor is at the heart of this 2.5-hour Museum experience, which includes an exploration of the symbolism of The CJM’s architecture through the lens of resilience and a hands-on artistic reflection.
