Contemplative Spaces

Contemplative Spaces

Just as moments of extraordinary and inspiring courage and hope pierced the pain and chaos of the Holocaust, contemplative spaces within the Museum provide visitors with a place to reflect and to process the images, messages and stories from the era of the Holocaust and today. As the architecture of the Museum moves visitors from darkness into light, these spaces quietly pay tribute to those who fought, resisted, lost their lives, or saved the lives of others.
