Family Sunday | International Holocaust Remembrance Day

January 28, 2024 | 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm Speakers Speakers Tour Tour Workshop Workshop

Join the Toronto Holocaust Museum for an exclusive afternoon of programming in honour of International Holocaust Remembrance Day (IHRD). Marking the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, members of Toronto’s international community and multicultural city are invited to the Museum to explore how the lives of two young siblings, George and Hana Brady, were affected by the Holocaust.


Lara Brady, George’s daughter and keeper of her family’s story, will guide participants through an exploration of the family’s wartime fate, popularized through the award-winning novel Hana’s Suitcase and featured in the Museum’s galleries. Engage with the ongoing legacy of this remarkable family story through augmented reality, readings, artmaking, and a hands-on replica artifact activity in an age-appropriate manner.


This program is designed for ages 10+

Family Sundays at the THM

The Toronto Holocaust Museum is thrilled to launch Family Sundays in the coming months. Each month, the Museum will offer free, curated experiences appropriate for all members of the family. At the heart of the experience is the opportunity to engage with Holocaust legacy and learning in an age-appropriate manner. Younger children will be inspired by art-making, music and storytelling activities that promote empathy, kindness, and tikkun olam (making the world a better place) while teenagers will be guided on an experience through the museum using our curated storyliner tablets featuring augmented reality. The Museum is partnering with various communities to ensure the lessons of the Holocaust reach a wide range of audiences from across the Greater Toronto Area.
