Our Mission

The mission of the Holocaust Documentation & Education Center is twofold:

1. To document and present an enduring, historically accurate record of the Holocaust through eyewitness Testimonies of Survivors, Liberators, Rescuers and others who survived terrifying experiences, who overcame fear and grief and who triumphed over evil, to live meaningful and productive lives. 

2. To educate this and future generations from all walks of life about the unique and universal lessons and legacy of the Holocaust, through insightful exhibitions and programming, revealing the catastrophic ramifications of prejudice, hatred and bullying, all of which are still very much in evidence today.
