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.

November’s book is a memoir and is tentatively chosen to be "In Search of Sugihara" by Hillel Levine.

CANDLES READS is a program designed for staff to Read, Educate, Analyze, Discuss, and Share with our followers. This program will be shared live through CANDLES' Facebook and Instagram.
