Great to teach history to child

I used this place to teach my 10 year-old child about a very dark time of world history. She was in fifth grade and was soon to learn about World War Two. I figured in school... read more

I used this place to teach my 10 year-old child about a very dark time of world history. She was in fifth grade and was soon to learn about World War Two. I figured in school they might gloss it over, so I wanted to make sure she got the whole picture. She knows a lot about Jewish people because... More

I was disappointed. Very few artifacts, mostly just enlarged photos. $12 was way too much for what it was.

This is a must visit in Atlanta, especially now that the city has a Center for Civil and Human Rights. Here you can see what had happened when racism was in control. How one nation could murder 6 million innocent people, only because they were Jewish. In Atlanta, the birthplace of Martin L. King, one can understand that racism should... More

This museum is definitely at jewel for Atlanta. I'm not sure why it is not promoted more. I do not know of anyone that has ever visited it which is a shame!! The museum is beautifully done although kind of hard to maneuver. There is a reason it is laid out the way it is and it is explained in... More

Having been to both the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C and the Illinois Holocaust Museum, I went to the Atlanta Museum not expecting too much from it. How wrong I was. While small, they disseminated much information about the Holocaust that I had been unaware of. I particularly appreciated the first tiny room I entered, where I learned about the... More

When my son and I entered the museum, we didn't know what to expect. I have seen pictures of other Holocaust exhibits as well as the stories of survivors. Being Jewish with my ancestry being Eastern European, I am vested in this part of history. This exhibit focused more on the people and less on the shock value of the... More

The Bremen Holocaust Museum is a reasonably priced, and beautiful place to visit in Atlanta. The museum is gated, and door locked. These two things must be unlocked by security (the gate has a call box, and there is security sitting right at the door of the museum). You must sign in at the gift shop. These measures are specifically... More

As I was viewing the museum one of the visitors was crying. I think this museum affects our deepest emotional beings and causes reflection on what is truly important in our lives.

The museum is filled with graphic, disturbing pictures of Jewish life during the Holocaust era and joyous, hopeful photos of life afterward. For anyone who wants to better understand what it was like for a Jew in Germany, Poland and other European countries prior to and during the 1930s and 1940s this museum is a must.

Programs here run the gamut from hearing and talking to a Holocaust (Jews prefer Shoah) survivor, educational programs that point out many tricks used by those working at mfg plants. I did not know and have never understood why there wasn't more resistance. They "fought" by making defective ammunition, and other forms of passive resistance. Bremen had a fabulous Judaica... More
