The Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum is dedicated to teaching the history of the Holocaust and advancing human rights to combat prejudice, hatred, and indifference. The museum’s introspective exhibits are grouped into three main exhibition spaces:
The Holocaust/Shoah Wing—Discover an incredible period in world history through a geographically oriented exhibition that leads visitors across Europe and back, from 1933 to 1945. The Holocaust/Shoah (Shoah is the Hebrew word for “catastrophe”) Wing explores the savagery of the Einsatzgruppen (Nazi Germany’s paramilitary death squads), their acts of individual murder and terror, followed by the events that culminated in the “Final Solution” and the industrialized killing of the Nazi death camps. Balanced poignantly against this horrific narrative are the stories of Upstanders, those who, when confronted with terrible inhumanity, chose to defend human rights. There are also testimonies of Holocaust survivors and liberators that personalize the visitors’ journey and give history a voice.
Human Rights Wing—Thought-provoking installations detail how the world has progressed since the Holocaust. Highlights include The International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, where Nazi leaders faced charges of crimes against humanity and war crimes; The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, based on the four foundations of dignity, liberty, equality and brotherhood; and the Ten Stages of Genocide, where 10 monumental art installations depict historical and contemporary genocides.
Pivot to America Wing—This gallery is equal parts inspiration and participation. Through interactive kiosks, brief films, and remembrances, guests can explore the ideals of our nation and how we are learning to live up to them over time; learn that it is up to all of us to participate in the repair process to create the best America possible. Two of the most moving and informative exhibits are Piccadilly Cafeteria, where personal testimonies help you experience Dallas’ cafeteria sit-in for African American rights; and the Beyond Tolerance Theater, which inspires visitors to confront their own biases and consider new responses to them.
The Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum is one of only two museums in the world to feature the Dimensions in Testimony Theater, which allows visitors to interact with survivors in perpetuity. Using high-definition recording, voice activation, and holographic imagery, Dimensions in Testimony was developed by the USC (University of Southern California) Shoah Foundation. It offers visitors the rare opportunity to sit across from a Holocaust survivor and ask them questions about their life and survival. Learn more by visiting DHHRM.org.
