Dallas Holocaust Museum
Sat, Sun: 11 AM to 5 PM
The museum’s mission statement reads “The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance is dedicated to preserving the memory of the Holocaust, and to teaching the moral and ethical response to prejudice, hatred and indifference, for the benefit of all humanity.”
A group of local survivors created the Holocaust Center to preserve the memory of what was had endured. Currently located in a temporary location (land has been acquired for a new building) the exhibit A Day In the Life of the Holocaust focuses on the behaviors of bystanders to the Holocaust by presenting three events that occurred on April 19, 1943. The exhibit contrasts three different responses to the Holocaust highlighting the bravery and courage of those who defended life at the same time that powerful decision-makers in the Allied governments remained indifferent.
Tours of the exhibit are self-guided using digital Audio Guides. These guides (available in English and Spanish) last from 30 minutes to two hours. Guest speakers, events, and special exhibits are presented throughout the year.
