In the early 1930s, the Nazi campaign against Jews included physical assault, economic boycotts, the expulsion of Jews from professions and the civil service, the exclusion of Jews from movie theaters and recreational facilities, and laws against marriage and sexual relations with "Aryans." Virulent propaganda blamed Jews as the source of all of Germany's problems.

The Museum’s exhibitions are supported by the Lester Robbins and Sheila Johnson Robbins Traveling and Special Exhibitions Fund, established in 1990.
