Current Exhibits

Now through January 2024 – Eva Kor from Auschwitz to Indiana. Learn the remarkable story of Eva Mozes Kor, who survived Auschwitz as a child and the experiments of Dr. Joseph Mengele, and grew up to be one of the most influential Holocaust educators and activists in the world. She ignited a global manhunt for Mengele, organized other survivors, and educated millions about what happened during the Holocaust and about her vision of empowerment and forgiveness.

Now through January 2024 – Dimensions in Testimony. A new feature allows visitors to take advantage of advanced filming techniques to have inviting one-on-one conversations with Eva Kor – a Holocaust survivor and eyewitness to history. On loan from CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center, USC Shoah Foundation’s Dimensions in Testimony allows visitors to converse with an interactive biography of Eva via a hologram-like projection. Guests can hear her personal testimony and ask questions that are of interest to them — learning more about her story in her own words.

Now through January 2023 – Documents that Shaped America. America’s founding was influenced by many different writers, philosophers, politicians and leaders. In this exhibit, the Indiana Historical Society showcases many of these significant historical written works such as a 1350 edition of the Magna Carta, a first edition 1788 U.S. Constitution (one of five known copies), a first edition of the Gettysburg Address, and an early edition of Life & Times of Frederick Douglass (1893).
