United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

More than 6,000,000 European Jews were systematically murdered between 1933 and 1945 by Nazi Germany and their allies. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum tells their story, preserves their memory, and gives visitors the opportunity to reflect on what it means to be responsible citizens of a Democracy.

The main exhibit is a 3-level self-guided chronological tour through “The Holocaust” that explores the rise of Nazi Germany, the outbreak of World War II, artifacts from Concentration Camps, and first-hand stories from Auschwitz.

It isn’t a fun and exciting museum to visit, but the Holocaust Museum in DC offers one of the most powerful and important museum experiences on earth.
