"I believe very strongly this is the most hopeful place in the city."
- Steve Adler, Local Holocaust Survivor
Finding Light in the Darkness - Through stories and artifacts of Washington State Holocaust survivors, the museum’s exhibit engages visitors in this history and challenges them to consider how each person’s actions make a difference.
Visitors can interact with video testimony from local Holocaust survivors, explore artifacts that bring history to life, and learn about local students who are upstanders in their schools and communities.
Special thanks to TPN for creating this interactive virtual exhibit.
Exhibit is on display at the Henry and Sandra Friedman Holocaust Center for Humanity, 2045 2nd Avenue, Seattle, WA 98121.
Please note: The Holocaust Center is closed for renovations November 2021 until late February 2022. We welcome you to come and visit the Holocaust Center in February!
