About the Museum of Tolerance:
The Museum of Tolerance (MOT) is the educational arm of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, dedicated to challenging visitors to confront bigotry and racism and to understand the Holocaust in both historic and contemporary contexts. Since opening in 1993, the Museum has hosted close to seven million visitors, including three million youths. Close to 200,000 professionals have been trained in the Museum’s customized professional development programs. No other institution offers such a motivational mix of historical discovery and personal empowerment, fostering dialogue between the past, present and future, and putting a spotlight on the crucial social issues of the day. Holocaust survivors volunteer their time at the Museum up to four times a day to share their personal stories. They are the most effective ambassadors of memory, hope and tolerance. www.museumoftolerance.com
