The El Paso Holocaust Museum and Study Center has itself become a symbol of survival.
After an electrical fire burned down the original building in West El Paso in 2001, museum officials almost immediately made the decision to rebuild.

It’s been a challenging, and sometimes slow, process, but the museum will open at its new Downtown home in January, more than six years after the fire.

The museum is in the final stages of completion — the galleries are being completed, the exact location of artifacts is being determined, and books are quickly filling library shelves.
