Holocaust Museum, located in Washington, invites its visitors to get acquainted, remember and relive the tragedy that has happened again. Holocaust - This is the mass destruction of the Jewish nation by the Nazis during the Second World War, who lived both in Germany and in other European countries. This is the worst example of genocide in the history of human existence (more than 5 million Jews died during the war).
The museum is an institution whose mission is to show what happened during the war, as well as a form of protest and non-recognition of fascism. The museum is also a memorial to a huge number of people who left during the Holocaust.
It was opened in 1993. By 2011, it has already been visited over 30 million visitors. This is the most visited historical museum in the world.
The museum has developed programs for any visitors. If you come with a child, then the Sunday family program is for you. The museum has an archive of documents, a photo archive and much more that will help preserve the memory of the past tragedy and of those who died in it.
Tasks of the Holocaust Museum
The main objective of the Holocaust Memorial Museum in the United States is to talk about the tragedy that happened to the whole world. To prevent similar incidents in the future. And also in order to honor the memory of the dead, and to make museum visitors think about their duties and responsibilities to themselves and the state.
The museum exposition consists of two main programs - for adults and children. After all, the child is not yet ready to see or learn everything in great detail, unlike an adult. Therefore, the children's exposition of the Holocaust Museum is based mainly on the creation of experiences.
Museum visitors can walk along the bridge from where the ghetto is visible, pass by the cemetery and the Tower of Faces, and even sometimes hear the voices of Auschwitz prisoners. There is a freight car in the museum (Jews were transported to camps in such cars) and a lot of terrifying things.
Museum organizers took the Holocaust very seriously. They wanted every visitor to feel how it was, and therefore they came up with the following: each is given real person's passport (which has already died), and a tour of the museum takes place for everyone differently in accordance withyour hero’s. And in the end, you understand what has become of you and your "character." Someone dies, and some survive.
Holocaust Museum - Museum of Conscience
Holocaust Museum also called the museum of conscience. The organizers of the excursion do everything possible so that the person after the visit is not oppressed or upset, but instead, tune in to a fighting spirit that will help improve life in our world. As they say, if you want to change the world - start with yourself!
