“Our Museum bears witness to unspeakable crimes and righteous self-sacrifice, to horrific pain and to bright hope. We remember the victims--and the survivors. And we ask visitors: Are you a bystander or an upstander?”
The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance tells the story of one fateful day--April 19, 1943. A focus on three events that day highlights the bravery and the courage of the powerless who heroically defended life and saved others at the very same time that the powerful decision-makers in the Allied governments remained indifferent.
We Make Upstanders
The Museum/Center believes that a different world cannot be built by indifferent people. Perpetrators have always depended on the silence of bystanders and always will. We invite you to watch our video, We Make Upstanders.
The Museum/Center preserves the evidence of the Holocaust while also serving as a transformative experience for our visitors. The archives of the Museum/Center contain over 550 collections of artifacts, photographs, papers, oral histories, and publications. Our oral history collection includes approximately 150 testimonies of both Holocaust survivors and liberators from the North Texas area.
Color of Memory
The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance is pleased to offer to other Museums a travelling exhibition entitled The Color of Memory: Art by Two Daughters of the Holocaust. The exhibition consists of the work of two artists, Julie Meetal and Veronique Jonas, whose paintings and sculptures embody the searing effect of the Holocaust on their families and on the Jews of Europe during World War II.
