Over the past fifty years there has been a phenomenal rise in the number of Holocaust museums. This exhibition presents a sampling of these museums from around the globe to show how the narratives and stories shared by these institutions have significantly impacted how the Holocaust is understood. These museums position the events of the Holocaust and its legacy as relevant to our present and future, considering that generations of students are learning about the Holocaust through visits to these institutions.
