Now in its 20th year of operation the Holocaust Museum and Learning Center (HMLC), a department of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, opened in May 1995 and was realized through the vision and generosity of many community leaders and Holocaust survivors. Museum supporters and members of the community will commemorate this important anniversary on August 9, 2015 at a special dinner being held at the Ritz-Carlton.
The Holocaust Museum and Learning Center houses a 5,000 square foot core exhibition that provides a chronological history of the Holocaust with personal accounts of Holocaust survivors who emigrated to St. Louis. Photographs, artifacts, text panels, and audio-visual displays guide visitors through pre-war Jewish life in Europe, the rise of Nazism and events during the Holocaust between 1933-1945, and post-war events including the Nuremberg Trials and Jewish life after the Holocaust.
In 2012, HMLC installed its newest interactive exhibition entitled Change Begins with Me: Confronting Hate, Discrimination and Ethnic Conflict in our post-Holocaust world today. By August of 2015 HMLC will have toured approximately one half million visitors during its twenty year existence.
