Harvesting hidden treasures in the community: Advancing the science of proactive collecting with Roslyn Sugarman

There is much material in community hands at risk of remaining untapped and urgency with regard to collecting due to the aging of survivors and competing efforts from international institutions to acquire memorabilia from Australian survivors. The curatorial department is embarking on a campaign of proactively collecting material from Holocaust survivors and their descendants. This material – letters, documents, photographs and memorabilia, preserves the narratives of the Holocaust and serves as a memory for future generations.

Roslyn Sugarman is the Museum’s Head Curator. She received a grant from the EHRI (European Holocaust Research Infrastructure) and will talk about her research at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in May 2017, which enabled her to envision how to manage this process as seamlessly as possible.
