Mataoca High School students visit Virginia Holocaust Museum

On Saturday, March 26th, the Matoaca High School American Red Cross Club visited the Virginia Holocaust Museum. During the visit faculty advisor to the club, Mrs. Maureen Cheatham, presented a donation to Mr. Jay Ipson, director of the museum. Twenty-one members of the club and a number of their parents were warmly welcome by Mr. Ipson and the museum staff. The group toured the museum after the presentation. It was a powerful history lesson for all in attendance. The Virginia Holocaust Museum is dedicated to depicting the Holocaust as experienced by its victims. A main part of the exhibition is about the family story of Holocaust survivor Jay M. Ipson. The museum features tours, programs, lectures, films and other events, and many of the emphasized stories are about the experiences of Holocaust survivors that reside or had resided in Richmond. The museum offers all tours and other programs free of charge to schools and the general public. Parking is also free.
