About Us

Our Story

The Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center is more than a state-of-the art museum. Offering dynamic public programming for all audiences, best-in-class curricular and educational resources, and cutting-edge community engagement opportunities, the Center is positioned as one of the premiere museums and resource centers in the country.

Our organization was created to carry on the moving stories and powerful lessons of one of the darkest chapters in human history. Rooted in this educational mission is a vision to create an entire community of upstanders—high-minded, everyday heroes who act because they refuse to be bystanders to the world’s humanitarian injustices or unmet needs when they know they have the capacity to help.

“Education that inspires action” was the guiding principle of Cincinnati’s community of Holocaust survivors when they established our organization in 2000, and we continue to honor their legacy and commitment to education.

In 2019, the Center relocated to the prominent and historic Cincinnati landmark, Union Terminal – the very place where thousands of local Holocaust survivors arrived by train from war-torn Europe to rebuild their lives. The iconic train terminal is also home to the Cincinnati Museum Center. This unique partnership is the first of its kind in the United States, putting Cincinnati on the map for bringing the lessons of the Holocaust into the civic conversation.
