Oh, this is not a fun place, but such an important place to visit over and over again.
Stories told here are from people who immigrated to St. Louis after living through the Holocaust.
Photographs, artifacts, text panels and audiovisual displays guide visitors through pre-World War II Jewish life in Europe, the rise of Nazism, events leading up to and including the Holocaust (1933-45).
Post war exhibits focus on the Nuremberg Trials, life in displaced persons camps, the birth of Israel and survivors’ “return to life” in the St. Louis region.
A powerful Sunday afternoon film series and a Garden of Remembrance adjacent to the museum are reasons to return often.
