A Goal of Creating a Safer World Through The Holocaust Memorial Resource Center

Visitors get a glimpse into the Holocaust through a combination of permanent exhibits, rotating exhibits, films, a library of 6,000 books, and an exciting Virtual Reality presentation that makes one feel as though they’re personally involved in the renowned story of Anne Frank.

The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center, located in Maitland in Orange County at 851 North Maitland Avenue, can be reached at 1-407-628-0555, and on the web at holocaustedu.org. One of the most popular displays is a virtual reality experience where visitors are immersed in stories of Anne Frank while she was in hiding in an attic from 1942-1944.
Displays here are not graphic, making them appropriate for all ages. Dedicated volunteers are knowledgeable and personable. They’re willing to answer any questions that may arise. This fascinating history center was founded in 1982 by Tess Wise and the building was constructed in 1986. This is one of the oldest Holocaust centers in the nation.
