Last weekend, I visited the impressive Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum. What a fabulous gem right in our own backyard. If you go on Sunday at 2PM, there’s a guided tour.

At the museum you will find artifacts and audio from survivors. Its easy to see why this is a popular field trip location for schools.

The highlight was hearing about Max Glauben, a Holocaust survivor, who founded the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum in Dallas. Walking through the Holocaust era boxcar that transported Jews was a profoundly moving experience.

Try reading these books at Rockwall County Library if you’re looking for more educational activities for families in the Dallas area:

Leach, Nicky. Texas.

Sanchez, Joanie. 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles.

Somers, Karen Borski. The Lone Star Hiking Trail.
