Dallas Holocaust Museum

The Dallas Holocaust Museum is a center for remembrance of the calculated murder of 6 million European Jews, as well as other targeted groups, as well as a center to further human rights and fighting prejudice and hate. The permanent exhibit focuses on one day: April 19, 1943. On this day, three things happened: the 20th Deportation Train from Belgium was attacked by partisans, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising began, and the Bermuda Conference met. These events illustrate wartime heroism, Jewish resistance against all odds, and diplomatic indifference. Groups can also hear a survivor speak, or visit the Garden of Remembrance.
