Teaching Tolerance At The United states holocaust memorial museum

Established in 1993, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is a living memorial that was designed to educate visitors about the Holocaust and to inspire people to challenge hatred and prevent genocide. The museum's permanent exhibition takes visitors on a solemn, chronological journey through the Holocaust from 1933-1945. The exhibit covers the rise of the Nazi Party and how their extreme views led to racist culture, world war, and the mass murder of six million Jews. The exhibit includes artifacts, photos, propaganda, and recorded stories from Holocaust survivors. The museum also hosts a variety of guest speakers, traveling exhibitions and special programs that highlight the continuing struggle against bigotry and hatred around the world.
