The WWII Veterans’ Museum

The WWII Veterans’ Museum

Hundreds of thousands of Jews fought in World War Two for the Red Army of the Former Soviet Union (FSU).

As their personal histories fade, Ariel’s education system and Social Services Department have worked together to make sure their memories and service are remembered and respected – through the creation of the Moisey Monosov Heroism and Memorial Museum for WWII Veterans and the “Connect” program.

The Veterans’ Museum, established in 1991, sits in a prefab structure in Ariel’s pioneering neighborhood.

Despite its modest setting, the Museum manages to transcend its surroundings by being one of the few museums worldwide to preserve the memories of Russian Jewish WWII Veterans – and by involving high school students in the process to carry on their legacy and provide companionship for survivors.
