History, Heritage and Hope
History, Heritage and Hope Permanent Exhibition
The Museum’s core exhibition, History, Heritage and Hope spans the first floor. Featuring original artifacts, video, and photos, it presents the history of the Holocaust beginning with the history of antisemitism and life before World War II, followed by the rise of Hitler and the Nazis and anti-Jewish legislation. The history of other victim groups, ghettoes and rescue are shown.
The exhibition culminates with sections about concentration camps and killing centers and a boxcar of the type that was used during the Holocaust. The final area presented is Lessons for Today where visitors learn about other genocides and acts of hatred occurring today.
