Haunting Dallas Holocaust Museum

The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center For Education & Tolerance is a up close and personal tribute to the memory of the millions who died during the Holocaust with survivors as tour guides and authentic artifacts the moment you walk in.  One part authentic museum, one part memorial, this center, in the heart of free America, capturePicture 10s the horrors of the Holocaust.

A Holocaust museum may seem a bit odd in the middle of Texas, thousands of miles away from the concentration camps in Europe, but this museum is the result of the hard work and dedication by a group of survivors. In 1977 a group of 125 Holocaust survivors from North Texas created the Holocaust Survivors in Dallas and in 1984 the Dallas Holocaust Museum came into fruition.

The museum entrance contains a railway car–an actual boxcar donated by the National Belgian Railways – used to transport Jews and other “undesirables” to concentration camps.  The tours, sometimes led by Holocaust survivors, take you through the museum and an entire room dedicated to the memorial of the millions who lost their lives in the Holocaust.

Michy’s Does James Beard Winning Experimentation

Having fun and experimenting with the menu is what it’s all about at Michy’s, the swanky, hip restaurant created by James Beard Foundation-winning chef Michelle Bernstein.Picture 7 Named after her childhood nickname, Michy’s is a reflection of her Cuban and Jewish heritage.

This cozy spot is the perfect match for a menu filled with original creations that beckons hints of her Cuban background with an added twist and flair from other countries. At this place, sharing is encouraged with dishes served as half or full sized. So go ahead, reach across the table, and take a piece of the crispy serrano ham and blue cheese croquettes served with a tangy, sweet fig marmalade; the crisp pork belly nectarine salad, soy ginger vinaigrette and spicy pickled radishes; or steak frites churrasco, house made fries with bearnaise and au povre dipping sauces.

Wash it all down with a suave Miami-inspired champagne mojito. Ahhh, now that’s  refreshing!
