Week 2: El Paso Holocaust Museum & Study Center

May 24, 2022

Visiting places like the first concentration camp in Dachau, Germany, Anne Frank's house in Amsterdam, Netherlands, or Holocaust Museums such as the one in El Paso has never been easy to handle nor process. However, the purpose of these places is to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust, which resulted in the murder of one-third of the Jewish people and countless members of other minorities. Furthermore, celebrate the heroism of survivors and rescuers.

El Paso Holocaust Museum & Study Center it is designed to guide you on a chronological history journey of the Jewish community before, during and after the Holocaust. Each room contains videos, pictures, replicas and more catered to a wide range of audience. The entrance is free; however, donations are welcomed.

This week's Puerto Rican dessert is inspired by the chocolate babka. Babka is a sweet-braided bread or cake that originated in various Jewish communities. This bread is typically brushed with sugar syrup or garnished with streusel; a topping originated in Germany.

Dessert: Braided pan dulce filled w/ chocolate ganache brushed w/ a glaze. Pan dulce can be seen often in our Puerto Rican cuisine.

Some popular breads made with this type of dough are pan sobao, mallorca, and mata hambre.
