Dallas Museum for Holocaust Studies Dedicated to the memory of the six million Jews who died during the WWII Holocaust, in the belief that by keeping this memory alive, no such atrocity will ever happen again. Housed on the bottom floor of the Jewish Community Center, the entry is down a stairwell with wall exhibits. A dramatic entry through a boxcar that actually transported Jewish victims to the concentration camps brings home the magnitude of this horror. Films from survivors, permanent and alternating exhibits of documents, photos, and artifacts from the death camps are shown here. Also available to the public is an extensive library of over 2,000 books, including European government books, and periodicals. There is a chapel and a memorial marble slab listing the concentration camps plus victim and survivor information. Museum officials recommend that children have some knowledge of the Holocaust prior to the tour and be at least 11 years old before touring. Guided tours by appointment can include a talk by a survivor of the Holocaust if requested. Museum may be open one night a week during the school year. Check if interested.
