“The Holocaust: What Hate Can Do,” the newest exhibition from the Museum of Jewish Heritage — A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, is open. The 12,000-square-foot exhibition in the museum, in downtown Manhattan, features more than 750 artifacts from museum’s collection, including many from survivors who settled in New York region. It offers an expansive and timely presentation of Holocaust history told through personal stories, objects, photos, and film — many on view for the first time.

This is the first exhibition to open in the museum’s core galleries since its award-winning and widely acclaimed “Auschwitz. Not Long ago. Not far away” concluded last spring. For more information go to mjhnyc.org.
