On Monday, August 5, 2019,  a diverse group of Boston area students joined Together, Restoring their Names at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York to tour the landmark exhibit, "Auschwitz: Not Long Ago, Not Far Away."

Following their experience in the exhibit, students held an intensive discussion connecting the lessons of the Holocaust to the world today. Additionally, they took what they learned into a writing seminar, in which they crafted pieces to reflect upon their experience.
