United States Holocaust Museum *

Chilling reminder of the message "Never Again"
This is a must-see stop in the Nation's capitol, right on the outskirts of the Mall. But be prepared to decompress afterward. Designed to have the walled in appearance of a concentration camp, you are drawn into the vortex of evil and the destruction of an entire population of Jews in Germany and beyond. With its exhibition space, and tours, documentaries and classes, it does a world-class job incorporating the antigay pogroms of the Nazi regime, and makes the connections between anti-Semitism and bigotry more generally in the starkest and most accurate form imaginable.
