This museum, the fourth largest of its kind in the country, does an excellent job educating visitors on the horrors of the Holocaust and honoring the memory of the 6 million Jews who lost their lives. A permanent exhibit entitled "Bearing Witness" includes two films which present first-hand accounts of Holocaust survivors and camp liberators who lived in the Houston area after the war. Visitors can also examine an authentic 1942-built German railroad cattle car; it is estimated that a total of 3 million Jews were hauled to death camps in cars exactly like this. Another rare relic on display, in striking contrast to the Nazi railcar, is a symbol of heroism—a World War II-era Danish fishing boat, the type used in 1943 to secretly carry over 7,000 Jews to safety in Sweden.
