22 Nov Museum of Jewish Heritage-Holocaust Museum:
New York, NY
Located in the picturesque setting of Battery Park, The Museum of Jewish Heritage has a mission of teaching the world about the past, confronting the present, and educating the future generations about the horrors of the Holocaust.
The Museum’s Core Exhibition features a plethora of artifacts and photographs in connection to Jewish history. The Museum is divided into three sections: Jewish Life a Century Ago, War against the Jews, and Jewish Renewal. The sections dedicated to the periods before and after the Holocaust help to understand the events, as well as show how the Jews rebuilt and live on.
One of the most powerful exhibits is the collection of pictures of Holocaust victims. There is also survivor testimony and twenty four documentary films interspersed throughout the Museum.
There is also a variety of temporary exhibits in the Museum at any given time.
The Garden of Stones was planted by Holocaust Survivors and their families in 2003. This garden visible from the museum is a place used by many to contemplate the horrors of the Holocaust and the future of the next generations.
