Peace Day Dallas

Free Admission Day at the Museum

On September 17, 2017, in recognition of the International Day of Peace, we will host PEACE DAY DALLAS - MEET THREE HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS, one at 11 a.m. Each survivor speaker will tell their story then answer your questions. Please allow at least 1 hour for each survivor. On this day, there is no charge to hear the survivors or to tour the Museum. However, space will be limited.

Very few Holocaust survivors remain. These survivors were children during the Holocaust. They offer a unique perspective of their childhood survival experience and their dedication to speaking out against hatred and intolerance. Plan to hear all three speakers or come for one or two. It's up to you.

Be aware that due to the somber nature of the topic the Museum is not recommended for children under 9 years of age.

​Join us as we recognize the “Peace One Day” global day of peace and celebrate the lives of local heroes. These survivors are heroes due their dedication and perseverance to make the world a better place.
