Submit your fondest memories from your visits/involvement with The Florida Holocaust Museum over the past 25 years.
As a Holocaust Survivor who knew, and grew up with Anne Frank who was my baby sitter and my mother having suggested the Diary to Edith Frank, I invite you to browse my website: www.pieterkohnstam.com Published in there countries, USA, The Netherlands and recently in Germany, being a prize winning author:” A Chance To Live”… Read more “As a Holocaust Survivor who”
I am deeply moved that our story keeps going. With hope someday peace will conquer our planet.
Every school (both public and private) should make this a “must” in their curriculum.
Living proof of the importance of learning about our history.
It’s nice to know how seriously people take this terrible event and to learn and understand what my ancestors have gone through.
Informative, educational, and necessary to preserve. Thank you to all who have preserved this truth for the people who are the future.
A very grounding and humbling experience to raise awareness.
Sacred work. Thank you for all you do to keep the memory alive and teach the next generation.
This has been a very informative experience and one that I have really enjoyed. This has given me such a new perspective on life.
It was a very beautiful experience. It touched my heart and I pray God puts love and compassion into our hearts. I will take it upon myself to make a change.
Thanks for helping me better understand this important piece of history. Never will I forget.
You learn about it in school, but you don’t really understand until you are able to walk through, and for a moment be in the victim’s body seeing what they saw and experienced. Standing in front of the box car and looking at the child’s ring that was found really hit me. The cruelty one… Read more “You learn about it in”
Thank you so much for this experience. I have learned a lot of things that I will never forget. My eyes have been opened to both the horrors and the hope in this world.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been here. I first came here on a class field trip in middle school and coming back in college has given me the opportunity to really appreciate the museum. Though we are taught about the Holocaust in school, it’s still amazing and horrifying to see that this actually… Read more “It’s been a long time”
I remembered again what makes me a human. It is empathy towards the entire history of the Jews that I find myself feeling pain. But I know there is light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you for an amazing experience, I can’t wait to learn more.
This was an incredible experience. I am grateful to have a place like this to come and reflect on past events that hold such terror and horror, but yet you see the Survivors and you gain so much hope.
Very inspirational and informative. The emphasis on why we learn about this tragedy in order to prevent it from happening again is so important. Thank you for continuing to spread that message.
I was deeply touched by the Museum. A wonderful display.
This is something I have wanted to do my whole life. Thank you, thank you. I was very blessed by the experience.
It is an experience I will never forget.
This museum has been very powerful to me. This brought tears to my eyes. May God bless you and keep you.
Very powerful images. Very touching.
Learn from the past and hope for the future. Thank you for sharing these stories.
The self-guided tour was excellent! We enjoyed learning, seeing, hearing, and feeling the stories of those who passed and survived these horrors.
Awesome tour. I’ve learned so much and I will never forget! As an aspiring future attorney, I will continue to work as a human rights advocate – this tour inspired me more.
In 2012, I had the opportunity to study and learn from Elie Wiesel at Eckerd College – today, I visit the FHM for the first time. This place serves as a moving reminder and testimony to the inherent value of life, and bearing witness to all life.
Beautiful museum filled with beautiful people. Let love be known throughout the world, make it the universal message by which we live. Love and knowledge. We should never forget the past, but learn from it and work towards forgiveness.
This experience was very educational and enlightening; it made me even more compassionate towards my fellow human beings. Thank you, God bless you, and keep up the good work.
Without history education and museums like this, history would be doomed to repeat itself. Thank you for providing this educational resource to the world.
A sad but honest reminder of the horror so many innocent human beings endured. May God rest their souls and may man never repeat the atrocities.
We hear about the Holocaust all the time, but to actually be face-to-face with the weight of what happened is a sobering experience. We cannot forget what happened. We have to remember their names. We have to remember their stories. Thank you!
I brought my Jewish daughter to the museum to teach her a bit about a part of her culture and history. I did not imagine my heart would break while walking through this museum. It is so important that we have establishments like this museum to serve as reminders of suffering that arises from hate,… Read more “I brought my Jewish daughter”
It was a blessing to have learned so much more than what we are taught. Definitely an eye-opener.
Thanks for everything. I am from Brazil and I want to become a History teacher some day. This museum shows me how important studying History is, and it motivates me to fulfill my dream. It was a gorgeous pleasure to come to this great museum, I hope it continues how amazing it is today!
Thank you – there are so many good people in the world and this museum made me think of that and left me with hope that they can do more than the bad.
This museum is amazing! People need to know what happened so this doesn’t happen again! There were things I didn’t know about that this museum taught me. Seeing the pictures and artwork really got to me.
This was a very moving visit! Peace to all people forever more.
Thank you so much for keeping the memories and souls alive of my ancestors. At the age of 46 I am just now learning more of my heritage and the revelations that are being discovered with my lineage. I wish I could physically go to these locations; maybe someday I can. You have given me… Read more “Thank you so much for”
Incredibly moving and a beautiful tribute to all those we’ve lost. I’ll come again and again to pay my respects and pray.
This museum allows us to see the true potential of evil in this world and it serves to remind us to love one another. Abolish hate.
My heart and mind are full. Thoughts to those who were sacrificed and those who survived.
We need places like these so that we may always remember those who were taken. We must learn from our human errors to ensure that they may never happen again. Thank you.
Many emotions – sadness, outrage, horror, pride (at courage shown) – a total “learning” experience – thank you for a wonderful exhibition – we ALL need to remember, and think about what happened.
Deeply moving. May God have mercy on all of us and purify our hearts to His will.
An extremely powerful emotional eye-opening experience. Let’s band together now and always in love for each of our brothers and sisters, along with our differences.
This was an amazing experience. I’m glad I came just to keep the memories alive. You won’t be forgotten.
Eye opening – to read about it in books is one thing, to see and touch living relics of genocide is another – overwhelming to see and feel the cruelty of man – to think that us as a race could be so heartless gives me chills – learned a lot though the museum.
Current events prove that we haven’t learned well enough from these crimes. I hope with all my heart that we can be better, love more, promote peace and actively refuse to accept intolerance, discrimination and hate.
I’ve always wanted to come to a place like this to learn more about this history. Growing up learning and reading about what happened to all the families in that part of the world touched my heart in many ways. I am glad that out of my 26 years I’ve finally gotten to experience this… Read more “I’ve always wanted to come”
Thank you for the opportunity to be here today – an eye-opener and a sobering one at that.
This is my second visit since I was thirteen with my 8th grade class. That was the year that I learned of the horrors of the Holocaust. I still haven’t forgotten, and I will never forget. I am 32 now.
It was a wonderful experience. It is indeed a sad history but it teaches you how cruel humans can be and what we shouldn’t do. “Knowledge is power.” Thanks for the opportunity.
A moving experience and an essential one. Thank you to Anthony for the informative and passionate tour.
Thank you for continuing to share this information and promote awareness. All my love and appreciation.
I brought my 10-year-old daughter here to help her understand the destructive power of intolerance and silence. In 2016, this museum is more important than ever. Its mission to enlighten, to empower, is part of the responsibility of collective memory.
This place is filled with so much history. I can’t believe something this terrible ever took place in our world. I’m praying that we can live peacefully.
Having grown up in a house centered around Judaism I feel more connected to this experience. I’ve always heard stories about my ancestors and read books on the genocide, but you cannot really comprehend until you have visited this museum. It has touched me and all my fallen family members. May peace be with you… Read more “Having grown up in a”
I honestly think everyone should visit this museum. It was very touching and eye-opening. I brought my two teenage kids and they enjoyed it as much as I did. Can’t wait to come back with other family members and friends.
