Our Mission

The Holocaust Documentation & Education Center mission is to document and present an enduring, historically accurate record of the Holocaust through eyewitness accounts by Survivors, Liberators, Rescuers, and others who survived terrifying experiences, overcame fear and grief, and triumphed to live meaningful, productive lives. 

To teach people from all walks of life the unique and universal lessons of the Holocaust, through insightful exhibitions and programming, illuminating the catastrophic ramifications of prejudice, hatred, and bullying which still occur today.
