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.
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
