  • We took our 13 year old grandson to visit this museum. He had read about the holocaust in school. It is not very large but I am so glad there are places like this to make sure that people don’t forget...  more »
  • During our visit, Mrs. Eva Kor, gave a talk about her personal experience during the Holocaust and definitely she caught the attention of the audience. One will hear a pin drop during the entire talk....  more »
  • Definitely a place where children, I'd say 10 and over, and adults could experience and learn. There are live speakers at times, holographic interactive stations, wall photos, library and other displa...  more »

  • Thanks to Eva Kor, staff and volunteers for preserving this difficult and heartbreaking piece of history. Well organized and meaningful displays and use of up-to-date technology. Mrs. Kor delivers a powerful message of forgiveness.
  • This place is amazing. I am so glad a survivor is leaving this history behind because it shouldn't be forgotten. It might not be huge, but it's memorable.
  • Great graphic wall displays with Holocaust information. It also promotes forgiveness and peace. Call ahead and see if a Docent will be there to tell their story. It's the most well-balanced museum of that kind that I have ever seen. Small but worth it.
  • Every time I visit the Candles Holocaust Museum I love it even more. It's calm atmosphere gives an almost spiritual feeling to the stories and experiences told by the pictures and exhibits
  • We must never forget. We live in a society where we have food, medical, doctors, and a warm home to sleep in at night. The victims of the holocaust didn't have any of that. Yet their love for God ran deep. At night when we sleep they are the stars that twinkle in the cold night sky that reminds me that they are my heroes. To those on the trains that went to Eastern Europe on those bleak long trips you were disrespected competently but in my book you are our guardian angels. Love lives on in your memory and you will never be forgotten. May all my Levi relatives rest in sweet peace of God's loving embrace. Go to this museum ...you will spend two hours there or more and it will change your life.
