Mission and Vision


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 endurance of Holocaust memory and understanding. A world without hatred and genocide that promotes tolerance of all people.
