The Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus opened in 1984...

The Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus opened in 1984. Local Holocaust survivors, with community support, founded the museum to teach about the senseless murder of millions, and why everyone must respect and stand up for the rights of others if the world is to prevent future discrimination, hate crime and genocide. As Michigan’s only Holocaust museum, the Holocaust Memorial Center annually touches the lives of more than 85,000 individuals, who leave the museum profoundly affected with a newly acquired sense of history, social responsibility and morality. The Holocaust Memorial Center’s exhibits create a call to action, teaching visitors through the examples of those who risked their lives to save others, and asking its guests to react to contemporary challenges such as racism, intolerance, bullying and prejudice.

Everyone, Jewish or not will benefit from their visiting experience. Well thought out to remember, make a difference, and educate to help prevent a genocide from ever occurring again. Stimulating and by far an experience anyone (age sensitive) will appreciate. This is not a boring museum experience. Take the time and listen to a real survivor talk with a small... More

This museum is very well organized and takes the visitor through a chronological trip back in time. Personal testimonies are also provided in the lecture hall.

After our tour, a survivor came and talked to us. It's hard to believe. She certainly had a good outlook on life. We're getting to the point where there aren't many survivors still alive. They have a great deal of pictures, posters, etc.

Everyone needs to see this museum and never forget what happened to 6 million people. Well done displays and interesting information. Not all doom and gloom, and a reminder to us all that human life is precious. There is usually another special exhibit when you go.

An excellent trip back into Nazi Germany and a presentation of the Holocaust. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the history of World War II.

Take a tour with a docent or hear a lecture to get the most out of this holocaust center. The building itself is designed to resemble a concentration camp - quite impressive.

I spent an hour driving and found it closed. A note at the entrance stated a reason I did not understand, maybe a Jewish holiday. Well, I checked their website before visiting but it did not list Jewish holidays. Apologies for not looking up Jewish holidays before visiting. I thought, well, probably I'm not part of their target audience.

This Jewish holocaust museum is very informative. They have a real holocaust survivor there to speak to you and give their account of their experience at the time. The walk through is great history. The video clips add to the information that the displays have. I've been there twice.

This is a thought provoking museum related to the experiences of many people during WWII. Museums like this will keep the story alive so that history will not repeat itself.
