Well over 80 years ago, the Union Terminal in Cincinnati welcomed Holocaust survivors. Last month, the terminal became the new home of the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust and Humanity Center, which features climate-controlled collections, archival space for artifacts and library space for the public.
Many Holocaust survivors traveled by boat from war-ravaged Germany and then by train to the Union Terminal. The Center includes survivors’ stories and experiences, as well as riveting sculptures, documents and other memorabilia. A dynamic mural from local artist Keith Neltner features 25 vignettes of survivor stories. Also on display are various interactive exhibits.
