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.

Both Eva and Dr. Loewenstein experienced the trauma of genocide in Romania and Germany, respectively. Spoiler: their stories have happy endings in an idyllic Midwestern town, where both were able to raise their families in peace without prejudice and work together to promote understanding.
