The Holocaust Documentation & Education Center (HDEC) has been devoted to documenting the memory of the Holocaust and educating today’s generation about the dangers of bigotry, hatred, and intolerance for the past 37 years.

The museum has been central in collecting over 2,500 oral histories of Survivors, Liberators, and Rescuers as well as artifacts, photographs, and documents that provide invaluable eyewitness accounts to the story of the Holocaust. The museum also features a unique combination of two iconic artifacts – a Railcar and an American Sherman Tank – of the type that liberated Dachau – that provide impactful moments of reflection for visitors.

As a leader of Florida’s Holocaust education statute, the HDEC hosts Student Awareness Days and programs that educate younger generations about the continued issues of hatred, bigotry and bullying. Students participate in writing contests as well as interact with the Survivor community in South Florida

Upcoming Exhibit

February 11-May 6, 2018
Holocaust Documentation & Education Center

“Propaganda,” Adolf Hitler wrote in 1924, “is a truly terrible weapon in the hands of an expert.” During the subsequent two decades, Nazi leaders showed the world bold, new ways to use this tool. State of Deception: the Power of Nazi Propaganda examines how Nazi propaganda shaped German society and prepared the population to accept, support, or participate in persecution, war, and the mass murder of Europe’s Jews and others. It also challenges visitors to think about their responsibilities as consumers of information and how they can confront harmful propaganda today.
