Simon Wiesenthal Museum of Tolerance

The permanent collection of the museum has two main themes: racism and prejudice in America and the Holocaust.

In the Holocaust Exhibit, visitors become witnesses to the events of World War II. A timed tour moves people from exhibit to exhibit to relive a decade of events in Germany from pre-World War II, through the rise and fall of the Third Reich to liberation.

Each visitor receives a different photo passport card with the story of a child whose life was changed by the events of the Holocaust. Throughout the tour, the passport is updated and at the end, the ultimate fate of the child is revealed.

The collection has also original letters of Anne Frank and artefacts from Auschwitz.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
