Indiana's Only Holocaust Museum

In 1995, Eva Mozes Kor opened the 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. CANDLES is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

CANDLES will be closed on Wednesday, July 4th. The museum will reopen at 10:00am EST on Thursday, July 5th.

Registration is currently open for the 2018 trip to Romania/Hungary with CANDLES and Eva Kor. Join us as we tour Eva's home village of Portz, where she and Miriam lived after the war, and their school in Romania as we hear Eva’s firsthand account of her life in pre- and post-war Romania, deportation with her family, and the struggle for survival.

Trip dates: October 6-14, 2018
