Visiting the Holocaust Museum is a very moving experience that I think everyone should have at least once. When you enter, you receive a pamphlet with an actual person's name. As you walk through the museum, you flip through the pamphlet to see how that person's life played out through the Holocaust and ultimately whether or not they survived. There is lot of reading to do in this museum - as there are tons of photographs with accompanying commentary. The pile of victims' belongings is very difficult to look at, as is the train car they traveled in. It helps you understand how dreadful war truly is and how important it is that we never let something like that ever happen again.
