Tucson Jewish Museum & Holocaust Center and its collection

Tucson Jewish Museum & Holocaust Center

The Tucson Jewish Museum & Holocaust Center is located in Barrio Viejo, an historic neighborhood on the southern edge of downtown Tucson. The museum features the first synagogue built in the Arizona Territory (1910) and a Holocaust History Center. Through educational and community outreach, exhibitions, and public programs, the museum explores the histories and contemporary experiences of Jewish people in Southern Arizona and purposefully places them in conversation with the experiences of other traditionally marginalized communities. The Holocaust Center presents the Holocaust through the life experiences of more than 260 Holocaust survivors who both survived Nazi persecution and later lived in Southern Arizona. The center includes a contemporary human rights gallery which hosts annual rotating exhibitions that highlight present-day human rights violations and issues of social justice. The TJMHC campus includes numerous exterior spaces including a memorial garden and contemplation space. The museum is dedicated to its work strengthening connections across the communities that comprise Southern Arizona and using the past as a tool to pave the way toward a more just and peaceful future.
