In Atlanta’s William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum, there is a life-size mock-up of the D. Haver grocery store, a Jewish-owned market that served customers in the city for many years. Kids can do their own shopping, with faux food items and toy shopping carts.

Nearby, and attached to the ceiling, is a set of rail tracks used in 1942 to transport Jews and others to Treblinka, the Nazi death camp in Poland. The building’s architect, Holocaust survivor Ben Hirsch, was told during the planning stage that if the tracks were on the ceiling they would be upside down. Hirsch’s response: “The world was upside down then.”
