Zekelman Holocaust Center

The Zekelman Holocaust Center is on schedule to finish its significant renovation project in early 2024. Harry will speak to the Club about how the renovations will help the Center transform the future of Holocaust education. 

Transforming the Future of Holocaust Education

The Zekelman Holocaust Center’s core exhibit is undergoing a complete renovation. The renovated core exhibit will elevate Michigan survivor voices in the telling of one of the most horrific events in world history by utilizing:

  • The latest historical research on and facts about the Holocaust
  • Cutting-edge exhibit technology, design, lighting, and fabrication
  • Interactive and carefully curated learning experiences

Our new guided tours will align with best practices in museum education and, following our goal of getting guests safely in and safely out of the museum, updated galleries will feature zones for reflection and inquiry.
