About the El Paso Holocaust Museum and Study Center
The El Paso Holocaust Museum and Study Center was established to educate the public—particularly the youth of today—about the Nazi Holocaust, as a way of ensuring that similar acts of terrorism will not be repeated; to memorialize and pay tribute to those who perished in the Holocaust and to honor those who survived; to fight prejudice and bigotry; and to remind the world, through education, of the value and dignity of human life.
