Starting in 1940 during Hitler's Reign in Germany and the rise of Nazism across Europe, many European Jews fled their homeland to seek a safe haven. Between 1940 and 1945, around 700 Jewish refugees settled in modern day Sousa and started a new rural life. The Jewish Museum of Sousa is dedicated to those first Jewish Settlers' hardships and struggle to survive, as well as how they shaped modern day Sousa.


The museum features mostly photographs and stories of the original settlers, as well as a narrative that follows them through the early years. Visitors will be able to take their time and explore the history, as well as visit one of the temporary and rotating exhibits that change time to time.
