Holocaust Museum Los Angeles



Founded in 1961, Holocaust Museum Los Angeles (HMLA) is the first survivor-founded and oldest Holocaust museum in the United States. Its mission is to commemorate those who perished, honor those who survived, educate future generations, and inspire a more dignified humane world. HMLA holds the West Coast’s largest archive of Holocaust-era primary sources, spanning the 1700s through the 1960s. This collection is used in exhibits, guided tours, creative education programs, and public offerings to instruct on the important lessons of Holocaust history and to foster analytical thinking.
