This small yet powerful museum gave me chills. Just seeing and reading about the Holocaust up to more present day horrors of intolerance and hate still occurring in today current society absolutely resonates deep within me.

Video interviews with vintage newsreel interspersed with display items and photos of the Nazi holocaust predominate but more current outrages are covered as well. I found the interpretive art done by school children especially interesting.

This is an ongoing project, started by a Jewish man displaced from Germany to China during WWII who ended up in Albuquerque, US and wanted to share and promote the importance of tolerance among people. Highlighting some of the recent racist persecutions, such as the Holocaust, Armenian Genocide, Rwanda Genocide, Native Americans and slavery in the US

This is a small museum. If your in the area its worth the stop. It runs on donations only and was staffed with one volunteer when I visited. It took about one hour to see everything.

I visited this museum and it is a sobering reminder of mans cruelty to man. One hour is all that's needed to spend at this exhibit.
