Germany 1938: Jews Forbidden

This was inside the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. I cropped out myself from the photo but still you can see me there standing in a street in Germany in 1938. In addition to the Holocaust memorial, the museum had some sections for other massacres in the world like Rwanda, Bosnia, and some other places. It was a very impressive place.

It must have felt strange standing there, trying to imagine the real place.
Thanks for this information that other mass killings are included in the Museum. I have never been there.
May there be no need for new additions.

May we always distinguish between real facts and dangerous political pipe dreams.

I haven't been there and I understand it's a moving, sometimes chilling experience. But everyone I know who has visited that museum tells me it's not to be missed.

I've never visited this one either, but want to. It seems that some humans of most generations find reasons to do evil somewhere in the world, and all the rest look away, or look on in horror. I visited Auschwitz/Birkenau in 1996, and wish everyone could.
