Hidden Treasures: Selections from Our Permanent Collection

hiddenTreasures01Since its inception, the Museum has collected a wealth of mementos, photographs, and archival materials pertaining to Jewish service in the American armed forces. But as with most other museums, we are only able to present a small portion – rougthly 2 to 5% – of this material at a time. In the collections of the NMAJMH there are many fascinating, touching, and amusing items that the public rarely has a chance to see. In a continuing effort to display the wonderful materials contained in the Museum’s collection we bring you Hidden Treasures: Selections from Our Permanent Collection, an exhibition created to highlight all of the interesting items that have been donated to the Museum over the years. Material in this exhibit will change regularly so that we may display as much of our collection as possible.
