We invite you to visit our museum.
All of our exhibitions showcase significant events in history and how they are relevant to us today. Our permanent collection tells an important story and our traveling exhibitions are brought in from world class institutions to provide you with a thought provoking experience.
The Holocaust Center features three historical permanent exhibits. When visiting, you will enter into our front room gallery where you will see the Holocaust history and stories through artifacts, videos, text, photographs, and artwork. Visitors have an opportunity to listen to the recorded testimonies of several Holocaust Survivors who settled in Central Florida.
As you continue moving through the museum, you will view Displaced Person, which traces the journey of Oswald “Valdik” Holzer, a Czech Jewish doctor. Dr. Holzer’s story is an uncommon reminder that even amidst the most destructive moments in human history, during assimilation into unfamiliar territory, inspiring decisions can be made to devote one’s heart, hand, and mind to protect and enhance the common good of humanity.
Our final permanent exhibit is called Behind The Bookcase which is a virtual reality experience transporting you to the Secret Annex where Anne Frank and her family hid from the Nazis.

The exhibit centers the perspective of Daryl Davis, a Black musician and ally, who has dedicated his life to fighting white supremacy by the deradicalization of former members of groups such as the Ku Klux Klan. He accomplishes these transformations through the power of respectful conversation, genuine connection, and friendship.
This exhibit will be on display through May, 2022
Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany Under the Third Reich
The Fate of Jewish Lawyers in Germany after 1933
In partnership with the American Bar Association
and German Federal Bar
Temporary Exhibition | June – August 2022
Lawyers Without Rights: The Fate of Jewish Lawyers in Germany after 1933 is about the rule of law and how one government – the Third Reich in Germany – systematically undermined fair and just law through humiliation, degradation, and legislation leading to the expulsion of Jewish lawyers and jurists from the legal profession. As the rule of law comes under attack today in both developed and Third World countries, Lawyers Without Rights tragically portrays what can happen when the just rule of law disappears – replaced by an arbitrary rule by law that sweeps aside the rights and dignity of selected populations.
The story of the fate of Jewish lawyers in Berlin and all of Germany is more than a historical footnote; it is a wake-up call that a system of justice free of improper political considerations remains fragile and should never be taken for granted.
