United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Location: Washington, D.C.

In memory of the Holocaust, the USHMM was created with the goals of promoting education and propagating ideas against genocide. Its staff members include a large number of actual Holocaust survivors, who tell their stories through projects such as Life After the Holocaust, a series of oral recollections of history following the end of World War II. Since the museum first opened its doors, more than 30 million visitors have been recorded, a vast majority being non-Jewish people. Collections include documents, photographs, and film footage from the era, such as a preserved teddy bear that was actually owned by a survivor.
