Indiana's Only Holocaust Museum

In 1995, Eva Mozes Kor opened CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Terre Haute, with a mission to prevent prejudice and hatred through education about the Holocaust. Thousands of people, including many school groups, have visited CANDLES since it opened. In 2003, the museum was destroyed by a hate-filled arsonist. Eva vowed to rebuild, and with the help of a generous public outpouring of support, the museum was rebuilt and reopened in 2005.

Upcoming Events:

Dear friends and supporters,

Eva is back in the museum after time off to rest and heal from her leg infection. She will be easing back into a regular presentation schedule as we move closer to spring. Thank you to everyone for sending your prayers and positive thoughts. We are grateful for the support of Eva and her health we have received. Please stay tuned for updates to the docent calendar for future speaking engagements.
