Home to an old Jewish community, the city opened Museu do Holocausto de Curitiba in 2011, the first and only institution of its kind in Brazil. You can take a free guided tour here, or choose to visit the exhibit at your own pace. Many displays are interactive, with original materials, such as numerous audio and visual recordings of survivor testimonies. The museum aims to preserve the memory of the Holocaust in the words of its victims, and to honor those who helped them and fought against hatred, racism, and prejudice. The museum is located inside the newly-built synagogue, which serves as a cultural and religious center of Jewish life here.

I think the opening of the guided tour was very long, the guide could have been more brief and should not force so much the comparison of Nazism with forms of discrimination, saying that this could also end in genocide.
Lugar incrível, me senti dentro da história. Fiquei bem chocada pelos fatos relatados pelos sobreviventes e também pelas fotos expostas. more »Amazing place, I felt in history. I was well shocked by the facts reported by the survivors and also by the photos exposed.
Raising awareness for antisemitism and discrimination. Thumbs up.
All big cities with jewish influence need a great jewish Holocaust memorial.
