The Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio is dedicated to educating our community about the dangers of hatred, prejudice and apathy.
Through our exhibits and educational programming we honor the memory of the six million Jews and other innocent victims of the Holocaust, and the inspirational legacy of those who survived.
Four members of the local Jewish community honor the memory of loved ones lost and the lives those who still survive, recounting the stories of survivors who called San Antonio home. Free and open to the public, this service will include a candle lighting by our city’s remaining survivors and a liturgy performed by our community's religious leaders.
Watch Kens 5's segment on our anti-bullying campaign on Great Day SA!

Forgiving Dr. Mengele is a bold and thought provoking documentary about a shocking act of forgiveness by Auschwitz survivor Eva Mozes Kor and the firestorm of criticism it has provoked. Eva and her twin sister, Miriam, were victims of Nazi doctor Josef Mengele’s cruel genetic experiments – an experience that would haunt them their entire lives. Thrusting itself into the rolling debate about how Jews in general and Holocaust survivors in particular must view the perpetrators of Nazi atrocities. Forgiving Dr. Mengele pointedly asks “Can you forgive, but not forget”?
Children. They are the most vulnerable victims of war and genocide. Between 1933 and 1945, millions of children were displaced as a result of persecution by the Nazis and their collaborators. After World War II, relief agencies photographed some of the children who survived to help find their families. Now, more than 65 years later, the Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio is working to discover what became of these young survivors.
