We are thrilled to be working on this exciting project that will officially open in 2023! Congratulations Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre 👏

📢 UJA Federation of Greater Toronto TO OPEN TORONTO HOLOCAUST MUSEUM TO IN 2023

Thanks to an extraordinary lead contribution of $12 million from the The Azrieli Foundation, UJA’s Sarah & Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre is thrilled to announce that the new Toronto Holocaust Museum will open in 2023. 👏🏻👏🏻

This state-of-the-art facility will become Toronto’s leading location for Holocaust education, inspiring visitors to think critically about the Shoah and to make connections between the Holocaust, contemporary antisemitism, world events, and present-day Canadian life. The Azrieli Foundation’s visionary gift is instrumental as the institution moves to its new home in the Sheff Family Building on UJA’s Sherman Campus.

Founded by Holocaust survivors over 35 years ago and known as the Sarah and Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre for the past ten years, the Toronto Holocaust Museum will build upon a foundation of excellence, ensuring that Canadian survivors’ experiences are never forgotten. We also want to express our gratitude to the York family for perpetuating their family’s commitment to Holocaust education.

We look forward to welcoming the public and students from schools across the GTA to the Toronto Holocaust Museum in 2023.

Painted by our very own, Joe Cortina, this portrait has been reunited with the family who commissioned it in 1975.

In a story of serendipity, Cortina was recently connected with the portrait sitter’s grandson. After discovering that the portrait of his grandfather that had hung in the National Valley Bank in Staunton, VA for decades was in storage, James Cooper Wamsley was happy to retrieve it and return it to his family as a treasured heirloom. Not knowing the artist who painted it, Wamsley decided to investigate based on the “Cortina” signature. He reached out to Joe, not intending to find the artist due to its early creation date, but was hopeful that he could find another Cortina operating near Virginia at that time. Joe was not only able to confirm that he was the artist (working as a student at VCU at the time), but also share a meaningful story of the painting’s commission, which was created from photographs after J. Hubert Wamsley’s passing.

“I am so happy I found the artist, and am humbled by your talent and accomplishments. Thanks so much for the fascinating back story. My father was correct, you absolutely captured my grandfather. His energy and kindness are clearly reflected in your work,” responded Wamsley.

Jacy has been taking sculpting classes for a few years now. “I loved playing with clay growing up and I believe sculpting played a big role in me choosing to become a 3D artist. It's very rewarding to have an idea and create it using only your hands and a few tools,” shares Richardson.

We recently installed our ready-made Thematic Collections Explorer at the Carlyle House Historic Park that we raffled off at the 2020 Virginia Association of Museums conference.

Here is what Andrea Cochrane Tracey, Historic Site Manager at Carlyle House Historic Park had to say about our latest software capabilities:
“Finally, a content management system (CMS) that doesn’t require an IT or programming degree! As a small historic house museum with limited staffing, Cortina Productions thematic collection interactive software gives us a staff friendly tool for expanding our offerings to the visiting public and making our collections and stories more accessible. And we get data on how guests are interacting with the exhibits. A worthwhile investment on so many levels!”
