Work to restore a Holocaust era box car continues. When completed, the box car will become the seminal artifact in the Holocaust/Shoah Wing of the new Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum. The museum is scheduled to open in September, 2019.
The box car was originally brought to Dallas from Belgium in 1984, when Jewish Holocaust Survivors and North Texas residents joined together and created The Dallas Memorial Center for Holocaust Studies. The Center was located in the lower level of the Dallas Jewish Community Center in North Dallas.
