The Holocaust Memorial Center will start a new docent
training session June 20 at 10 a.m. It will be held at the
HMC, 6602 West Maple Road, West Bloomfield
Docents guide tour groups through the HMC. They ex-
plain the exhibits and help visitors comprehend the great-
est human tragedy in history.
The HMC conducts an extensive, ongoing training pro-
gram for docents coordinated by docent Judy Miller. Par-
ticipants view videos, read assigned books and articles, and
share the experiences of seasoned docents. A one-on-one
walk-through tour with a member of the docent training
committee completes the program.
The training program normally lasts several weeks, but
it can be tailored to meet participants' needs and schedules.
Future docents can complete their training at their own
pace. Once they have finished the program, they can choose
the day or days on which they would like to serve.
Mature people who want to make a difference by ex-
plaining and interpreting the lessons of the Holocaust should
call Selma Silverman, 661-0840, for more information.
