Artifacts and Memories
Stories from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Collection

Speaker: Steven Luckert, Ph.D.
Dr. Luckert will highlight unique artifacts from the permanent collection of the USHMM in Washington, D.C., which he has curated for the past 20 years. The wedding dress at the top of this page, made from a German parachute, represents just one example. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet the man behind the most famous exhibit in Holocaust Studies.

Dr. Luckert is Senior Program Curator in the Levine Institute for Holocaust Education at USHMM and is Curator of the acclaimed permanent exhibition, The Holocaust. He has also curated eight special exhibitions, including State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda. Dr. Luckert has appeared in many media outlets such as: CSPAN, NBC Nightly News, Huffington Post, ZDF (German Television), PBS, Fox, New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, NPR, and more. Steven Luckert received his Ph.D. in Modern European History from SUNY Binghamton and has published on German history, the Holocaust, and Nazi propaganda.

This program is made possible by the financial support of the Arnold and Esther Tuzman Holocaust Education Fund. Arnold and Esther Tuzman each fled their homes as teens to escape the Nazis. Esther was hidden by a Polish Catholic farmer. After imprisonment in a Siberian labor camp, Arnold served in the Polish-Russian army. Still in uniform after V-day, Arnold gave a ride to a beautiful young woman named Esther. They married in 1946 and immigrated to the US in 1947. The Tuzman family is proud to support The Arnold and Esther Tuzman Holocaust Education Fund.
