Air Force museum in Ohio offers tour of Holocaust exhibit based on Dayton area residents


DAYTON — A military museum in southwest Ohio is offering a self-guided audio tour of a Holocaust remembrance exhibit put together with the help of Dayton area residents.

The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force near Dayton is highlighting the tour for the national Days of Remembrance that begin today. The exhibit is called “Prejudice & Memory” and draws form photographs, artifacts and the memories of people who now live in the Dayton area.

Visitors can download a free podcast or listen to individual audio files.

Aerospace educator Erin Craig says it’s an unusual exhibit because it focuses one community’s connection with the Holocaust, the killing of 6 million Jews by Nazis seven decades ago. Craig says the museum plans to soon add more in-depth oral interviews to its website.
