Time Out says

"The Holocaust: What Hate Can Do" is a new 12,000-square-foot exhibition at the Museum of Jewish Heritage that features over 750 original objects and survivor testimonies from the cultural center's own collection. 

In an effort to educate folks of all ages and backgrounds about the horrific events that led to the possibility of the Holocaust even happening, the exhibit is, according to an official press release, "rooted in the objects donated by survivors and their families, many of whom settled in New York and nearby places." 

"The title of our new exhibition speaks to our institution's very reason for being," says Museum president and CEO Jack Kliger. "Antisemitism and fascism are again on the rise throughout the world. Right here in New York, we have witnessed not only a surge in antisemitism but an uptick in violence and harassment targeting many marginalized groups. The time to speak out and act is upon us, and it is urgent. We hope 'The Holocaust: What Hate Can Do' will educate and inspire our visitors and honor those who perished in the Holocaust, whose memories are a blessing."
