Last year, The Beit Haedut Museum received a train car from Germany that was used to transport Jews to the extermination camps. The museum planned to place the train car in a courtyard as an open-air exhibit, allowing groups to enter the wagon and connect to their feelings and emotions.
In November 2021, a ceremony was held at the Beit Haedut Holocaust Museum as the train car exhibit was official placed and opened. The ceremony was attended by 50 guests, including a platoon of local soldiers who came to pay their respects.
The Beit Haedut Museum is also fundraising for a viewing room to hear first-hand recordings of survivors, a replica model of camp barracks to offer visitors an immersive experience as they learn about the horrors of the Holocaust, as well as a new build second story "Sky Wing".
