Toronto Holocaust Museum Opens

The new Toronto Holocaust Museum is a state-of-the-art facility featuring groundbreaking technology and innovative approaches to Holocaust education. Officially open to the public today, the Toronto Holocaust Museum takes a visitor-first approach to Holocaust education with the goal of creating personal connections, deeper respect, and greater understanding, especially amongst younger audiences.  

Cortina Productions designed and produced 20 media experiences, including an augmented reality exhibit called Storyliner, which provides varied content depending on the audience type to allow for deeper engagement with individual stories and experiences. Eleven testimony stations feature originally shot interviews with Holocaust survivors as well as oral histories from the Shoah Foundation that allow visitors to connect on a personal level. The individuals speak directly to viewers while answering questions that the viewer has selected on screen.  

“Toronto Holocaust Museum’s media exhibits offer a truly personalized experience for visitors through experiential learning and reflection,” states Senior Producer, Rebecca Tulkoff. “We are reminded on a regular basis of the critical need to continue to educate new generations so that the Holocaust is not repeated, and these exhibits give individuals the means to be more informed and gain personal connections with the survivors’ stories and experiences.”
