Mission Statement

The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education & Tolerance is dedicated to preserving the memory of the Holocaust and to teaching the moral and ethical response to prejudice, hatred and indifference, for the benefit of all humanity.

Description

The Museum is one of the oldest institutions of its type in the country, uses history to teach middle and high school students the dangers of bigotry, hatred and apathy, while reinforcing ethics, character education, citizenship and tolerance. The DHM/CET is dedicated to preserving the memory of this horrific event, but we are much more than that. As the Center for Education and Tolerance we do not focus on "transferring information" as much as we are about "transforming lives." Our exhibit strives to answer the question: "Why Did the Holocaust Happen?" We use the Holocaust as the touchstone for understanding the phenomenon of genocides and the dangers of replicating this horrific pattern of behavior in the present day. A positive, transformative experience will lead visitors to conclude: "This is how people (especially "me") ought not to act towards one another. I personally should behave differently than I have been behaving up until today. I should do more to impact my community(local, regional, national, global),today and in the future." We believe that a different world cannot be built by indifferent people.
