The new exhibition, among many highlights, will include a floor-to-ceiling replica of the Brandenburg Gates draped in Nazi flags, as they were during WWII; ten 17-feet-tall, free-standing artistic interpretations of ten modern genocides that each highlights one of the ten stages of genocide; and an immersive Holocaust by Bullets gallery that will feature hundreds of bullets raining down from the ceiling as a visceral representation of the taking of life that occurred in Europe prior to the creation of Nazi death camps.

Pacific Studio of Seattle fabricated the core exhibition materials. NFI, a global logistics and transportation company based in New Jersey, transported the 600 tons of materials in six 18-wheelers, which left Seattle on March 18 for Dallas. The materials will be installed in three main wings: the Holocaust/Shoah wing, Human Rights wing, and Pivot to America wing.

The new, 55,000 square foot museum is located on 300 North Houston Street in the West End.
