Almost three years later, in October 1984, the Holocaust Memorial Center was dedicated and opened. Since then, the HMC has welcomed more than one million visitors from all over the world. Tens of thousands of school children tour the museum each year and have the unique experience of speaking with a survivor of the Holocaust.” Learn more here.
