  • 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 will spend two hours there or more and it will change your life.
  • Small museum, but very important to "bring home" the atrocities people are capable of committing against their fellow humans. The small museum is set up very well to ask meaningful questions that help the visitor, especially middle school age children, think about how the history is relevant today. I highly recommend that you make an effort to see one of the survivors speak here while it is still possible. Eva gives an excellent lecture. Check their web page for a calendar.
  • One of the foremost locations for Holocaust history in the United States. Brand new exhibits with tablet applications that further your learning experience. Candles also now has a jacket worn by an actual surviver which was donated from New York. Must see in the Wabash.
  • great!!! I I know on my field trip to candles I learned a lot
  • If you like history you will like it
