This museum explores Jewish life before, during and after the Nazi genocide. The permanent collection includes documentary films, thousands of photos and 800 artifacts, many donated by Holocaust survivors and their families, while the Memorial Garden features English artist Andy Goldsworthy’s Garden of Stones, 18 fire-hollowed boulders embedded with dwarf oak saplings. Special exhibitions tackle historical events or themes, such as “A Town Known as Auschwitz: The Life and Death of a Jewish Community.” The new Keeping History Center brings the core collection to life with interactive displays, including “Voices of Liberty,” a soundscape of émigrés’ and refugees’ reactions to their arrival in the U.S.—which is made all the more poignant juxtaposed with the museum’s panoramic views of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
