Jewish Life

The Holocaust Memorial Museum educates students on more than just the Holocaust; the museum also highlights Jewish life before, during, and after the war. When students walk into a train car that was used to transport hundreds of people, they will walk away with a deeper understanding of the true devastation of the Holocaust. Visitors are given ID cards, which contain the story of one individual who experienced this devastating event. That experience, along with seeing a seemingly simple room full of shoes, is nothing short of powerful.
