Founded in 1978 in Orange County, CA, Auschwitz Study Foundation serves local students through art and holocaust education.

Through art created using materials from the Auschwitz Concentration Camp, Holocaust survivor Mel Mermelstein has shared his experience to encourage young people to learn from our past mistakes, so that we do not make them again.

Auschwitz Study Foundation exists to ensure that Mel's art and his experience can continue to be shared with young people throughout Orange County as a way to teach love and compassion.

We must learn from the horrors of the past so that we do not repeat them.

Our Mission

Using Holocaust artifacts and art, to educate generations to come and memorialize the past while cultivating peace.

Our Mission

Our Vision

That we honor survivors of the holocaust and learn from our past to create a world filled with peace, compassion and justice.
