Holocaust Memorial Center, Farmington Hills
Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day and Michigan has the distinction of having the first free-standing museum dedicated to the memory of this horrific event: The Holocaust Memorial Center on Orchard Lake Road. It is open to the public everyday of the week except Saturday. You can see the six glass peaks on the exterior of the building, representing over six million Jewish victims. The free public tours are very informative and given by knowledgeable and passionate docents. We were fortunate to hear and meet holocaust survivor, Mrs. Mania Salinger, author of the book "Looking Back".
