Margaret's Legacy was established to provide quality Holocaust education that breeds tolerance, inspires hope, and nurtures healthy dialogue by using the micro-history of Margaret and Arthur Weisz as a springboard.
We are proud to announce the opening of the Margaret's Legacy Holocaust Learning Centre in Spring 2024. The centre will host the recently donated “Harriet Smiley Memorial Holocaust Collection" which will belong to the permanent exhibit. Thanks to the partnership with the Yad Vashem International School of Holocaust Education Studies, we will have the opportunity to hold temporary exhibits and a new curriculum to further enhance the experiences of our visitors.
The centre will serve as a hub for students, teachers, and the general public to receive Holocaust education and teacher training. This centre will bring to life the dreams and aspirations of Margaret's Legacy and further strengthen our commitment to education and remembrance.
With a strong dedication to research and education, Margaret's Legacy continues to expland its resources and reach people in profound ways.
