North Adams Holocaust museum on the edge again
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. (AP) — A western Massachusetts Holocaust museum is once again facing an uncertain future.
The New England Holocaust Institute and Museum rents storefront space in North Adams, but only has enough money to make rent through November.
The museum founded in 2012 was in a similar situation earlier this year, but a donor came through at the last minute to cover the rent for a few more months.
Founder Darrell English tells The Berkshire Eagle (http://bit.ly/ZXPnl6 ) he’s weighing his options, including relocation, finding another donor, or in the long-term, sharing space with other city museums.
English is an antiques appraiser and dealer and the museum contains many items from his own vast collection of World War II-era memorabilia.
He has said the museum hasn’t drawn as many visitors as he’d hoped.
