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.

The museum will be open regular hours (Tues-Sat 10:00am-4:00pm EST) in December, including the Saturdays before Christmas and New Year's.

As we head toward the end of the year, we invite you to join our efforts to expand our mission and Eva Kor's message in 2018. Throughout the next year, CANDLES will showcase new innovative technology to teach about the Holocaust, launch an ambassador program that will spread Eva's message even further around the world, and expand youth involvement in museum through scholarships and network-building.

We need your help to make this happen. With your support, we will continue to shine our light.
