This year marks the 20th anniversary of the genocide of the Tutsi people in Rwanda. The world’s leading authorities on genocide remembrance, study, and prevention have launched a commem- orative program called “Kwibuka20” with a mission to “remember, unite, and renew” global efforts to make “Never Again” a reality.

Vision Statement


CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center is the only organization in the world dedicated to the memory of the twin victims and survivors of medical experimentation at Auschwitz. We honor and celebrate the lives of the Mengele Twins by telling their stories to educate the world and prevent similar atrocities. Our institution is not only a witness to history but also an active voice outside the museum walls. By working to prevent genocide on a global level and transform prejudice on a local level, we aim to create a world free from hatred and genocide.


Happy Birthday, Eva!


Many thanks to all those who helped celebrate Eva's 80th birthday. Birthday greetings came in from all over the world. Here is the video tribute presented at the February 1st celebration.
