This event was so sad. I can't believe what happened. To see that people actually survived this horrible journey and acutally have younger Jewish generations is amazing. I hope to meet a survivor in person.

Wow this is really cool to learn about what people went through during the holocaust. But its uncool because its HORRIBLE,its horrible how Hitler and his Nazi army could do this to the Jews and it makes no sense. There wasnt even a reason for it. I just hope it doesnt happen again beccause hate didnt die with Hitler. Hitler just died with a lot of hate with him.

Wow. To be able to hear the stories of those who were actually there...those who actually suffered...is something I've never been lucky enough to experience until today. This is an amazing idea and wonderful project, so thank you. The Holocaust was an event that shaped word history and the lives and family histories of many--it should never be forgotten.
I actually went to this museum this past summer during a trip to D.C. I would encourage anyone who has never gone to definitely make the stop. But take a day or two to look and let it in soak in. It's like a wake-up call you'll never forget, because it feels personal. It's not a textbook telling you the number of deaths and the number of ways they died. It's you, walking through one of the train cars that people were crammed into like sardines. It's you, standing in a room with a real crematory from Auschwitz. You get to see it. You choose whether you believe it. And either way, you won't forget it. You get to see things first hand, which will make you feel responsible to not let this happen again. At least it did for me.
Next time you're in D.C., make the time for this museum. You won't regret it.
Again, thank you. Thank you so much.

wow. the holocaust was very terrible and tragic. my great grandfather actually survived the holocaust but his family did not. they died in the gas chambers...when he came to america in about the early fifties he did not know how old he was because they had burned his birth certificate!
god bless everybody who survived!

I believe this was very wrong for anybody to go through that to survive. People should be treat equaly. No person is different from the other. People should not be treat badly because of their race,the way they look,sexualty or things like that. This is very hard for me to right this. Its hard for me to stop crying. I am gald that some jews survive so they can tell their stories what they had to do to survive. I want the jews to know don't be mad yourself be happy that you survived to see a better tomrrow. Jews i give you my blessings and my love for what you had to go through. I am only 14 years old. Love is what keeps you moving without you are nonhing. Jews may you all live in peace and harmney.
I will never forget you guys ever. You guys will always live in my heart. Say Hello to a new begining. Don't forget Love!!!!!

I am very sad that this has happened...The holocaust shouldnt have been like that, because many people just died because of their race and that is not good...God Bless who all survived and my love is towards you.

My father was a POW in Stalag Luft Zwei in WW2 and he escaped from and then came back sitting on the front of the first tank in, to liberate his camp. He said it was "the greatest sound he ever heard." Thousands of British, French, Russian and AMerican pilots as they were liberated. He then went on to liberate Dachau. He said, "they just lay there.." How terrible their treatment that they could not even respond to being liberated!
We are all part of the human family. We must never forget the brave members of the holocaust and those that survive.

Holocaust was and remains the greatest evil the world has ever experienced. Like the Rwanda Genocide, it came about because some world leaders mistook it for an Israeli problem and therefore refused to act timeously, decisively and extremely harshly to suppress the evil. Sadly, the world is still encouraging new Holocausts, particularly in Africa. Darfur is an example and a scar on the conscience of world leaders!

well the holocaust is something we can try to ignore but it happened. It's amazing how one person can change one nation. I cry way to much when I think about the holocaust. So many innocent people died just because of their race. Why so much hatred?why?
well i just want to say that my heart goes to those who died during the holocaust.Those who survived may God Bless you.

I was born in the 60's and when I first heard about the holocaust I was shocked. The more that I read and saw the more that I needed to know. This was a very tragic time in history and to know that people allowed this to happen to innocent people is beyond thinking. I have heard that many people that perished wanted their stories to continue. I feel that I owe this message to stay alive for for all that was lost. I will continue to read and watch what ever comes my way to honor the lives lost and to make people realize how much hate can do. Sites like this also continues to keep the memories alive and allow the world to know. Thank you for sharing this site.
