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.

Born in Lodz, Poland, Pinchas grew up in a Hasidic Jewish home. In April of 1943, Pinchas and his family were forced to live in the Warsaw
Ghetto, where they hid during the uprising. He endured the next two years in five concentration camps while keeping his faith.

Pinchas is a featured survivor in our Dimensions in Testimony exhibit and we are excited to host him and hear him share his story over Zoom.

This event will take place on Zoom.
