More About Florida Holocaust Museum
The Florida Holocaust Museum, located in downtown St. Pete, was built to remember the lives that were lost in the Holocaust. Its aim is to teach members of all races, creeds and religions the immoral and inhumane nature of genocide, and the history of the one that took place during WWII. The museum is imbued with artificats from the era and exhibitions that illustrate it to the greater public. One artifact of particular importance is the Kaddish on Wood, which depicts French children who suffered in the Holocaust.
