The Virginia Holocaust Museum is dedicated to depicting the Holocaust through the personal stories of its victims. The museum memorializes and documents the atrocities of World War II.
The Virginia General Assembly offered the American Tobacco Company Warehouse for the relocation of the museum. It had opened in 1997 at the Education building at Temple Beth El and was running out of room. After restoration and reconfiguration of the American Tobacco Company, the expanded Virginia Holocaust Museum was dedicated on Yom HaShoah, the Holocaust Day of Remembrance, 2003.
The Nuremberg Courtroom exhibit gives visitors the chance to see a full recreation of Room 600 at the Palace of Justice, used during the International Military Tribunals.
