About the Museum of Holocaust and History Education

The Museum of History and Holocaust Education (MHHE) is funded in part by the Marcus Foundation and is housed at the KSU Center on Kennesaw State University's extended campus, north of Atlanta. Founded in 2003, the MHHE serves more than 80,000 visitors a year. The MHHE presents public events, exhibits, and educational resources focused on World War II and the Holocaust in an effort to promote education and dialogue about the past and its significance today. The MHHE works with diverse communities and K-12 schools, as well as faculty, staff, and students at KSU to meet these goals.

The MHHE has several onsite signature exhibitions (Parallel Journeys: World War II and the Holocaust Through the Eyes of Teens; V for Victory: Georgia Remembers World War II; The Butterfly Project) and a number of traveling exhibitions (The Tuskegee Airmen: The Segregated Skies of World War II; The Heroic Present: The Gypsy Photographs of Jan Yoors; Beyond Rosie: Women and World War II; Remembering Ravensbrück: Women and the Holocaust; Parallel Journeys; and Through Her Father's Eyes: A Slovak Child in the Shadow of the Holocaust). Additionally, the MHHE has curriculum and traveling trunks that comprise an extensive outreach program serving diverse audiences.
