Holocaust Museum’s boxcar also on display at Naples Municipal Airport

Naples Municipal Airport invites the public to visit the Museum of Military Memorabilia during August.

Throughout the month, the Holocaust Museum’s boxcar, which likely was used for deportation during the Holocaust in World War II, will be on display at the airport’s Commercial Airline Terminal. A 12-panel exhibit travels with the boxcar and highlights the Holocaust deportation, as well as genocides in other places over the past 200 years. A rare artifact built in 1919, this boxcar is a mobile educational tool that supports the museum’s mission of promoting respect and understanding by teaching the history and lessons of the Holocaust. It is on loan to the Holocaust Museum from Jack and F.E. Nortman, the Nortman Family and The Boxcar Foundation. To learn more, visit www.HolocaustMuseumSWFL.org.
