There is no wow factor at the Holocaust Memorial Museum, and that is as it should be. Viewing the images and artifacts presented, requires thoughtful consideration. Hitler's calls to "make Germany great again" have a familiar ring in today's political climate.

I definitely recommend this... More

To have survived the second World War, you can reflect over what could have been and what happened, the horror of it all, and how lucky you were.
