Experience an Immersive Journey Unlike Any Other at the New Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum

Fulfilling a lifelong dream of local Holocaust Survivors, the Museum emphasizes human rights education for the next generation.

The highly anticipated Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum opens to the public on Wednesday, September 18, a dream 40 years in the making with an expanded mission to educate students and the public about the history of the Holocaust, human rights, and the ethical responsibility for all humanity to combat prejudice, hatred, and indifference.

The Museum will be unique among the nation’s 21 Holocaust-related museums by expanding its examination of the Holocaust through technology-enriched galleries on human rights, other historic genocides, and America’s journey for civil rights.

It also features 68 video testimonies from Dallas-area Holocaust Survivors, stunning artifacts from concentration and death camps, great exhibits of real locations like the Brandenburg Gate, and a fully restored Nazi-era boxcar.

Modern, immersive, and interactive technology will captivate visitors throughout the Museum’s three floors. Experience the Human Rights Wing, where the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Ten Stages of Genocide are explored.

The Pivot to the America Wing allows visitors to explore the development of civil and human rights throughout our nation’s history in its American Ideals, Reality, and Repair gallery. The gallery also spotlights American and Texas Upstanders who have driven the process of repair. The Beyond Tolerance Theater in the Pivot to America Wing allows visitors to learn about the role implicit bias plays in their thinking.

At the Call-to-Action kiosks, the visitor experience culminates in a call to act upon what visitors have learned on their tour by connecting with organizations to start making a difference.

The new Museum is one of only two in the world that has a permanent Dimensions in TestimonySM Theater – an interactive, holographic project developed by the USC Shoah Foundation that will allow visitors to interact with a Holocaust Survivor long after they are of blessed memory.

Survivor, Max Glauben

The interactive technology will enable visitors to speak with holographic images of Survivors in real-time, including one of Dallas’ own Holocaust Survivors, Max Glauben, who will be the featured Survivor that visitors will interact within the permanent theater.

The mission of the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum is to teach the history of the Holocaust and advance human rights to combat prejudice, hatred, and indifference.
