This is one of the finest museums relating to the holocaust that I have been too. I found it educational, well organized, and deeply impactful. It’s hard to leave this museum without feeling a deep sense of sadness, but I highly recommend visiting.

Overall well done. It was presented in a very appropriate and personal manner. I was interested to learn of the strong survivor presence in El Paso. Opportunities to include relevant holocaust information were missed but like I said, overall very well done!
