United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

The USHMM, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, opened in 1993 in a building adjacent to the National Mall. This austere building in imposing style, designed by the architect James Ingo Freed, plays the incongruity and discomfort card. The aim is to make the visitor typically interested in documents, research and works on the Holocaust reflect straight away. The permanent exhibition, on three floors, recounts its chronological history, from 1933 to the liberation of the concentration camps and the creation of the State of Israel. The Hall of Remembrance is the place for meditation where an eternal flame is burning.
