The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida (Website) has just announced that is has partnered with the USC Shoah Foundation –The Institute for Visual History and Education (Website) which will serve as a content and creative partner in the development of the new Holocaust museum in Ivanhoe Village.
This will be the first time USC Shoah Foundation has teamed with a Holocaust museum to design, develop, and implement a permanent museum-wide exhibition.
The foundation was created by Steven Spielberg after the filming of Schindler’s List, and has created an archive of more than 55,000 video interviews with Holocaust Survivors and other witnesses to genocide.
The Holocaust Center announced in January 2018 that it would be creating a new museum near downtown Orlando at the former Chamber of Commerce building at 75 S. Ivanhoe Boulevard [GMap], expanding its space from 7,000 SF to an estimated 40,000 SF.
The new building is being designed by Maurizio Maso of HuntonBrady Architects.
