Lessons from the Holocaust Launch Museumís 10th Anniversary

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum begins its 10th anniversary with a special program recognizing people representative of those whose lives have been deeply affected by the Museum, and who use those lessons in their work as they guide others. This is the first in a year of programs that focus on the power and responsibility of the individual, especially in the face of evil.

Ranging from a Washington, D.C., public school student to a South Dakota educator, cadets from Annapolis and West Point to a Tennessee pastor, and Holocaust survivors to police chiefs, these individuals will describe their connection to the institution and its continuing impact on their lives.

ďEach of these remarkable people and so many more like them have taught us something about the potential of the Museum, a potential we could never have imagined when we opened 10 short years ago. As we dedicate ourselves to the institutionís second decade of success, we are particularly grateful to the American people for their grasp of the possibilities of our mission, and the contributions so many have made to conceiving and developing our programs,Ē said Museum Director Sara Bloomfield.

Since it opened to the public in 1993, the Museum has welcomed more than 19 million visitors, including nearly 6 million schoolchildren and 14 million non-Jews. For more information on special events and the Museumís 10th Anniversary activities, visit www.ushmm.org.#
