United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
The soul of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is the Permanent Exhibition which covers 40,000 square feet on three floors.
The challenge is to tell the entire story of the Holocaust inside this building. To transport visitors 50 years back in time, a continent; away, and introduce them to a world where ordinary lives are shattered by unspeakable evil.
