  • United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is one of the most amazing places that I have ever been, and I honestly don't even really know how to explain what I was witness to when I was there
  • I think if you go there you will never bear witness to almost anything that is more amazing yet sad at the same time, and if I was able to go back anytime soon
  • You are give a Passport which is basically tells you the story of one of the people who suffered during this time period, and you do get to keep this as a souvenir which I thought was very cool
  • My suggestion is that everybody needs to go here because in all honesty we all hear what we learned in school
  • So as I said before everyone at some point in their life should at least go here one time, and in my honesty opinion if you are able to more than once because it's a great learning experience

      United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is one of the most amazing places that I have ever been, and I honestly don’t even really know how to explain what I was witness to when I was there. I think if you go there you will never bear witness to almost anything that is more amazing yet sad at the same time, and if I was able to go back anytime soon. I would jump on it because honestly I don’t know if I was really able to gather everything from being there at this time. This place while doesn’t give you a complete insight to what all of these people suffered through it does give you a little bit.

      This memorial museum covers around 265,000 Square feet,


      and 36,000 Square Feet of that is the permanent exhibit. The first thing that really sets up the mood of this museum is basically right when you walk in a see everything for the first time from the hand rails, to the walls, the floors, the arches are all things similar to what was found in Auschwitz and that really sets the mood of this museum as a some depressing time.

      The most unique thing here that I loved learning about while it did make me very sad at the same time was the preeminent exhibit. You are give a “Passport” which is basically tells you the story of one of the people who suffered during this time period, and you do get to ...


      • keep this as a souvenir which I thought was very cool.

        There are a couple of other floors but one the choked me up most was the Voices of Auschwitz which is where you get to listen to actually survivors talked about what it was like to endure and suffer in these camps, and there are books so that you can follow along with what the person is talking about.

        Also in an other hallways there are thousands old shoes which are lined up and it’s very eerie to walking through there. Another thing is that you can walk through some of the train cars that carried so many of these people away from their homes, and to these camps where they suffered. You can’t walk

        through all of it though there are parts that are blocked off from you.

        My suggestion is that everybody needs to go here because in all honesty we all hear what we learned in school. But this place gave me a much bigger perspective as to what happened while these people where here. Being able to hear recordings of what survivors went through will chill you to the bone, and there is no better way to learn from these mistakes that the world has caused then to go here. So as I said before everyone at some point in their life should at least go here one time, and in my honesty opinion if you are able to more than once because it’s a great learning experience.
