Virginia Holocaust Museum aims to educate about the Holocaust, to memorialize and document the atrocities with exhibits, programming, and outreach

The Virginia Holocaust Museum preserves and documents the Holocaust in exhibits and its archival collections. Through the permanent exhibit, educational programming, and outreach, the museum employs the history of the Holocaust and other genocides to educate and inspire future generations of Virginians to fight prejudice and indifference.

The Museum is free and open to the public.

The Virginia Holocaust Museum collection consists of authentic, historical objects, documents, photographs, digital files, and oral histories related to and from the Holocaust (1933-1945) and World War II (1939-1945). Although these two time periods are the focus of the collection, the VHM also collects objects from prior to the Holocaust and WWII if they are related to local survivors and liberators, or to events that contributed to the Holocaust.
