trunkEducation Trunks

Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio invites you to participate in our Holocaust Curriculum Trunk Program. These dynamic trunks are designed for elementary school, middle school, and high school educators to assist in teaching the historical facts relating to the Holocaust as well as the consequences of discrimination and apathy in modern society.

All trunks contain a variety of multimedia tools including videos, posters, photographs, maps, classroom sets of books, lessons plans and student activities, and seek to make students aware of their personal responsibility within our community.

Trunk Reservations

Trunks are available on a first come, first served basis, and may be checked out free of charge for a period of four weeks. To reserve a trunk, please complete and return our Trunk Reservation Form. Upon receiving confirmation of your trunk reservation, you may pick up your trunk at the Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio, 12500 N.W. Military Highway, from 9:00 am-3:00 pm Monday-Friday or Sundays from 1:00 pm-4:00 pm. Please call the museum before picking up your trunk to ensure that staff are available to assist you.

Types of Trunks

Trunk Inventory

Trunk Inventory Sheets are available online (list above), and a copy will be provided with each Curriculum Trunk.

The discrepancy needs to be filed with the Museum’s Education Director within 48 hours of the pick-up date.


In order to continue providing our Curriculum Trunks free of charge, it is essential that our generous sponsors understand the true impact of their gift. As “payment” for receiving the trunk, the Museum asks that each teacher and / or the students write a Letter of Thanks detailing the impact of our program. Place the letter(s) in the trunk and it will be forwarded to the recipient.

The curriculum trunks are provided through generous contributions from the Alex and Sally Halff Foundation, the Charity Ball Association and the Dalkowitz Charitable Trust.
