RICHMOND, Va. -- After closing because of COID- 19 then reopening under the governor’s safety guidelines, the Virginia Holocaust Museum is now operating and inviting guests to visit and see “what hate can do.”

Virginia Holocaust Museum Executive Director Sam Asher said the 120,000-square-foot building is home to rare archives, images and survivor stories of the Holocaust.

The museum’s permanent exhibition takes you through a timeline of raw and poignant images like “The Night of the Broken Glass.”

In addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum will commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27 with several programs.

Countering the rise of anti-Semitism is January 25; Finding Matilda is January 27, and a classical concert is January 31. The events are virtual and via Zoom.
