This is a closeup from a French resistance armband. The Forces Françaises de l'Intérieur (French Forces of the Interior) was the formal name of resistance fighters in France as it was liberated by Allied Forces. 
This armband features the Cross of Lorraine, which was a symbol of Free France during World War II.

Every year the VHM pauses to remember and honor the memory of the six million Jews who perished in the Nazi Holocaust. This year the Museum's Day of Remembrance will be held on Sunday, April 19th at 2pm. 

Immediately following the Yom HaShoah service, all guests are invited to the formal opening and public premier of the Museum's new Auschwitz/Oświęcim exhibition.

Aushwitz/Oświęcim is made possible by the generosity of the Dominion Foundation of Dominion Resources, and Weinstein Properties.

The Staff and Trustees of the Virginia Holocaust Museum offer our deepest sympathies to the people of Haltern am See.
It is through the generosity and hard work of our dear friend Alexander Lebenstein(OBM) and students at his namesake school in his native Haltern, that we were able to obtain the Boxcar that now sits in front of the Museum.
The Museum treasures our connection with Haltern, and will never forget the dedication and kindness of the students at the Alexander Lebenstein Realschule.
This photo shows Alex with some of the students and staff of the Alexander Lebenstein Realschule in Haltern.

Join us April 19th at 3:00pm for the opening of our new Auschwitz exhibit.
Auschwitz/Oświęcim will give an overview of the most notorious Nazi death camp, but the main feature of the exhibit will be the incorporation of local Survivor testimony. The Richmond area was home to a number of Auschwitz survivors, and their stories will be told throughout the exhibit.

Founded to educate the community about the tragedies of the Holocaust, the Virginia Holocaust Museum strives to memorialize and document the atrocities of World War II. Through exhibits, programming, and outreach, the Museum uses the history of genocide to teach the dangers of prejudice and indifference.
