When the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum opened in 2019, nearly 75 years had elapsed since the fall of the Third Reich. And yet, the number of anti-Semitic hate crimes was reaching record highs in the United States. Mark Holsinger, a principal at Dallas-based Omniplan who led the design of the museum, says working in this context added a sense of urgency to the project. "Any time there was an incident" such as the 2018 fatal shooting of 11 people at a Jewish synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pa. "it reinvigorated the team," he says. “Everyone sensed the importance of getting this building right."
