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. Our front room gallery showcases the Holocaust 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.
We also feature 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.
