Located next to Fort Ontario Historic Site in Oswego, NY, The Safe Haven Museum is the only official government holocaust refugee shelter museum in the World.


The Safe Haven Holocaust Refugee Shelter Museum is dedicated to keeping alive the story of the 982 European refugees who were allowed into the United States as “guests” of President Franklin D. Roosevelt during the Holocaust in World War II. They were temporarily housed at Fort Ontario in Oswego, New York from August 1944 – February 1946, and the Museum chronicles the despair and rescue, preservation, and triumph of these post World War II holocaust survivors.
