ST. PETERSBURG - The Florida Holocaust Museum is currently recruiting for new docents. Individuals must be able to commit to a seven-week training course.
Prospective docents will be taught the history of anti-Semitism, the Holocaust and post WWII genocides in order to give guided tours. Training classes will be held September 11 through November 2, every Monday and Thursday, from 9:30 a.m. through 12:30 p.m. No prior background in Holocaust education or history is needed.
An in-depth history course including documentary footage and photographs will be provided. Participants will meet with Holocaust survivors, learning their stories through first hand accounts, in order to pass on the message to Museum visitors.
With the help of experienced docents, class participants will learn how to interact with students and work with the core exhibit and art exhibitions. Working as a docent is a truly rewarding experience. Through fulfilling the mission of the Museum, docents help make the world a better place.
Candidates interested in taking the class should contact Elyse Gerber at (727) 820-0100, Ext. 221.
The Florida Holocaust Museum honors the memory of the innocent men, women, and children who suffered or died in the Holocaust. The Museum is dedicated to teaching the inherent worth and dignity of all human life in order to prevent future genocides.
