Project Description

QM produced three tours—in English, Spanish, AD, and ASL–differentiated by style. Bearing Witness, with English narration by Academy Award-winning actor Christine Lahti, daughter-in-law of Survivor and HMH founding member Otto Schlamme, incorporates interviews with survivors and liberators. Directed at the broad audience, the Human Rights and Still I Write tour is voiced by local high-school students. Architect Mark Mucasey and Museum CEO Kelly J. Zúñiga, Ed.D lead visitors through the museum’s ground-breaking design.
