1. A Visit by Deborah Zuberi, Chairperson of Book Bank USA and Marlene Konsens, representing Book Bank USA to the Holocaust Museum in Budapest, Hungary in May 2012.
This facility, which opened its doors in 2004, is one of eight museums and universities around the world which contain the archival records of Sidney Kluger, founder of Book Bank USA.
Today,The Holocaust Museum, also known as the Holocaust Memorial Center, is built upon the site of a former synagogue, which is now a part of the permanent exhibition of the museum. The importance of the museum has become even greater as some people in our days deny the fact that there ever was a holocaust.
This event drew approximately 1,100 school children who celebrated by painting a number of faces.
