Jewish culture may not be nearly as prevalent in the South as it is in other parts of the country, but this museum provides a glimpse into Atlanta's Jewish heritage nonetheless. Through photos and multimedia, the two main galleries cover the Holocaust and the subsequent impact it had on the local Jewish communities. Many Atlanta-area Holocaust survivors provide their own first-person accounts via video, as well as artifacts for exhibits reflecting those treacherous years. While this museum might not appeal to everyone (e.g. out-of-towners), it's a powerful way of making the Holocaust more relatable to Southerners by putting a local face on it. The museum frequently welcomes traveling exhibits as well. There's free parking, but limited spaces.
