When the brand new Dallas Holocaust Museum opens in a year’s time, among 18 interactive testimonies from Holocaust Survivors around the world shall be that from a survivor of the 1937 Nanjing Massacre.

With the Museum’s mission to teach the history of the Holocaust and advance human rights to combat prejudice, hatred, and indifference, the state-of-the-art building will be a welcome change from 33 years of living in rented accommodation.

No longer able to meet the demand of over 86,000 annual visitors from Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana and Oklahoma, the new 5,000 square metre permanent home for the Dallas Holocaust Museum shall be sited in the West End Historic District of the city.

In a press release, Museum President and CEO, Mary Pat Higgins, said, “This technology and interactive educational experience is only available in a handful of museums throughout the world. The Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum is honored to partner with USC Shoah Foundation and the Dimensions in Testimony team to ensure that even after our Survivors are no longer with us, generations to come will hear their inspiring stories of resilience and hope. They can ask questions, hear responses in real time, and learn about a devastating chapter in world history from those who experienced it first-hand”.
