Holocaust Center Moving Downtown

The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida, which for more than three decades has used the lessons of the Holocaust to create a more just society free not only of anti-Semitism but of hate, prejudice and bigotry of all forms, will move to downtown Orlando.    

On Monday, January 22, the Orlando City Council unanimously approved an agreement with the Holocaust Center to lease the former Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce building and the adjacent Senator Beth Johnson Park to create an iconic, architecturally significant, world-class museum and community gathering place in downtown Orlando.   

Located in the heart of our city, the new center will help strengthen the cultural fabric of Orlando, creating greater synergies and partnerships with the academic, business, faith and nonprofit sectors of our community.   

This will be much more than just a destination; it will be a perfect fit for our community.
