The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum: Center for the Prevention of Genocide
was opened in April 1993 following unanimous approval from the United State Congress. Up to
date this museum has received close to 30 million visitors of different cultures and from different
parts of the world. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has over 12,000 artifacts
collections, about 50 million pages of archive documents and over 80,000 historical photographs.

doors to the public. I was l...
