Through the years the Holocaust Documentation and Education Center has collected artifacts and memorabilia relating to pre-Holocaust, Holocaust, and post-Holocaust life.
To date, over 800 documents and 4,100 photographs have been cataloged and scanned.
These will eventually become part of a virtual library for viewers anywhere in the world to see.
