This week marks what would have been the 90th birthday of beloved Museum founder, Jona Goldrich. We pause to remember him with great affection and gratitude for his longstanding generosity which his family carries forward in his memory.

The Goldrich Family Foundation, a key supporter of the Museum since its inception, is now headed by the daughters of Jona Goldrich z''l, long-time Los Angeles real estate developer and Jewish philanthropist, Andrea Goldrich Cayton and Melinda Goldrich. 

Both Andrea and Melinda serve key positions on the Museum's board of directors and are committed to their father's vision of the Museum's important role in Los Angeles. The Foundation is a major underwriter of the ongoing operations of the Museum, helping support the Museum's mission of Holocaust education and commemoration through its robust programs and community engagement. 

Jona's role in the creation of Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust has had a strong impact on his children and grandchildren. The family shows its commitment to the future of the Museum both through its actions and financial support. 

The Goldrich family and the Goldrich Family Foundation strongly support the current management team at the Museum and have been in active consultation with the management team as it has implemented changes over the last few years to support the Museum's growth and continued vitality.

The executive management team at Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust is exceedingly grateful to have the unprecedented level of support provided by Andrea Goldrich Cayton, Melinda Goldrich and the Goldrich Family Foundation. Together we are committed to carry on Jona Goldrich's legacy to commemorate, educate and inspire.

In observance of Rosh Hashanah, the Museum will be closed Thursday, September 21.

Henry Slucki 
Sunday, September 17 at 3:00 pm
Henry was born in 1934 in Paris, France to Polish-Jewish parents. After Nazi Germany's initial occupation of France, Henry and his family resettled to the south, where they remained until 1942. That year, Nazi Germany invaded the whole country, and Henry's family escaped through the Pyrenees. They made this dangerous journey on foot, and eventually made their way to Barcelona, Spain. From Barcelona, Henry's parents made the difficult decision to send him to the United States by himself as part of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt's initiative to save refugee children. After the war, he moved to Los Angeles, where he became a professor of behavioral science. 
This talk will be preceded by a docent-led tour at 2:00 pm. 
With gratitude to the Joseph Drown Foundation for its generous support of free Holocaust education and school tours, to the Michael & Irene Ross Endowment Fund for its generous support of Voices of History programs, and to the Max H. Gluck Foundation for its generous support of the Share Our Stories Project.
