Somber and sobering, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is unlike any other museum in Washington DC. Housed inside an imposing limestone, glass, and brick building, the museum’s exhibits take an unflinching look at the Nazi Party’s rise to power in Germany and the subsequent execution of millions of Jews during World War II. Displays use historical objects, photographs, film footage, and Holocaust survivor testimonials to confront the horrors of one of the darkest chapters in human history, as well as to document courageous rescue efforts.
