We're loving the messages Sacred Heart students took away from their field trip!
“Until you follow in the steps of the persecuted and walk into the gas chamber, you can never fully understand the fear that millions of innocent people faced during the Holocaust,” declared Max.Mrs. Nordlie’s eighth grade class at Sacred Heart Parish School spent a day “following the steps of the persecuted” at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, learning about the horrors of prejudice and the responsibility of tolerance.They stopped at the ...

Last Monday, we welcomed 150 Nogales High students to tour the Museum. The next day, those students gathered in their gym and joined us via Skype to hear from Holocaust survivor Renee Firestone.

This is one of the core messages we try to get across in our own Anne Frank Exhibit:

Out of the 6 million Jews and 9 million non-Jews who were murdered by the Nazis, Anne Frank was just one of those precious lives tragically cut short. Learning one story helps open doors to learning the whole story.

Come see our Anne Frank Exhibit for yourself: www.museumoftolerance.com/anne

It almost seems that this museum is dedicated to spreading hate on Muslims. They have great galleries to learn more about the Holocaust. But why spread lies against Muslims? As a society we need to be more tolerant of other faiths. I have been there multiple times as a child and this place has never changed. What a contradictory museum!

Disgusting museum, it poses myth as fact in many cases, even editing a film known as "The Ambulance", in which Nazi's disguise a "gas van" as a ambulance and kill children, in the museum I seen this film and having seen "The Ambulance" I instantly realized what they had done. What enrages me even more is small children from a nearby school were in this center, watching this "real footage of children being gassed" when I know for a fact that they have stolen a real life movie, edited it and made it look like a documentary. Truly a museum designed to brainwash people into believing anything without evidence, this is far more dangerous than intolerance. And please, I insist you get new and better staff which are capable of giving and receiving a smile without staring at you, acting as if me greeting them politely is somehow disturbing them. Over all this is not a museum, museum's present facts, not myth.

Mind blowing museum. One voice, many followers and they the innocent suffered. Made me break down. But beautiful thing to learn of history. A well learned lesson we dont ever want to happen again. My sincere condolences to the loss ppl of the holocaust.

I went on a field trip with the teen parent program I work for. It was incredible. Quietest bus ride home. I am now planning a visit with my own family.

The tour I went on felt very rushed. I didn't have much time to really read what I wanted to read and we skipped a lot of videos because of a group behind us. I would enjoy returning to get a more thorough experience, but from what I did see it had some great information. I just didn't get to absorb much (if any) of it.

Ive called and Ive been and the operator on the phone was just as tudey as the lady guarding the Museum. Dont get me wrong the people checking us in and the people strip searching our car were incredibly nice..almost too nice that I ate my words after I met the rude lady at the museum. Geeze...i get it, it was a tough time and we have to show respect and smiles are not free here.. But goodness gracious it really deters me from ever wanting to come back for future visits.

It may not be the best laid-out or run museum but it shows the beginnings of intolerance brilliantly, from the tiniest shrug to full-blown intolerance sanctioned by society. Several intolerable examples – Rwanda’s is only one example - are indeed mentioned and the implication is that each one of us, at any age and all over the world, has to be aware of how our reactions, however slight and non-committal, can grow alarmingly out of control. The Holocaust, or Shoah, is presented in the second part of the tour as the most horrific of all examples: this is not at all because it is the only devastation in history but what the directors and docents unfortunately know about most and are most capable of teaching. The museum does not specialize in artefacts, though there are upper and lower floors with donated items and long-term exhibitions such as on Anne Frank, and there are numerous events such as films and talks on subjects other than the Holocaust, for instance on the Arab Spring, Native Americans and other peoples, with question-time open to the audience. The point of the museum is to examine individual behavior and how it plays its part in influencing society which if used and taken over by destructive forces – such as but not only the Nazis – one can end up with six million dead and a civilization in ruins. The tour therefore has to be led by a docent and timing is important. If the lesson of the first part of the tour is not forgotten after the tour through the ‘Holocaust’ years, the experience is sobering and yet energizing with our renewed understanding of our selves and society.

good if you'd like to visit a jewish propaganda center. if you are planning on going or bringing anyone like your kids, id much rather recommend elie weasel's "night" (about his experience in the holocaust) and "MAUS" a comic book that also tells of people in it by using animals instead of people. approachable for children but it doenst shy away from what happened there. if you're planning to get a historical understanding of this era and what lead to it, theres many textbooks and other such information you can get for about the same price.
