New Exhibition Opening:
Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race

This year, on January 27, 2015, we will open the traveling exhibit: "Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race", from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.  Each year the Ghetto Fighters' House commemorates International Holocaust Day by examining topics that deal with the warning signs of discrimination and racism prior to WWII or other subjects that force us to examine humanity and universalism.
