As the United States reflects on the Holocaust during the Days of Remembrance from April 27-May 4, a new self-guided audio tour from the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force helps onsite and online visitors experience "Prejudice & Memory: A Holocaust Exhibit."

The Holocaust audio tour is narrated by Renate Frydman, project director and curator for the "Prejudice and Memory" exhibit. Made up of the photographs, artifacts and memories of people who now live in the Dayton, Ohio, area, it is one of few exhibits in the U.S. compiled to demonstrate one community's connection with this terrible event. Visitors can download the free podcast or listen to individual audio files on the museum's website at

Exhibit project officer and aerospace educator Erin Craig said the public will soon have access to more in-depth oral interviews conducted with several volunteers who are featured in the Holocaust exhibit. These interviews will be available on the museum's website.

In addition, the museum offers onsite educational programs related to the Holocaust, giving students the chance to tour the "Prejudice and Memory" exhibit and learn about the importance of tolerance. For details, including information about grants to defer transportation costs, please contact the museum's Education Division at (937) 255-4652 or

"We are fortunate to be able to offer programs like these to people of all ages, and especially to our young visitors," Craig said. "It is a wonderful opportunity for them to see important artifacts and hear the stories of people who lived through the Holocaust."

Other self-guided audio tours available at include an overview of the museum's galleries, as well as tours on intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance, Ohio's aviation heritage and prominent black aviators in Air Force history.
