United States Holocaust Memorial Museum — the enduring legacy of Elie Wiesel

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 3:06 pm

You can read about the “enduring legacy of Elie Wiesel” in this news article written by Sara J. Bloomfield: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/sara-j-bloomfield/elie-wiesels-enduring-leg_b_10968548.html

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Without him [Elie Wiesel], it is hard to imagine the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. This is not only because he led the 1978-79 presidential commission that recommended the creation of the museum and then went on to serve for six years as the founding chairman of the governing council that would oversee its development. Equally consequential, he imagined a very particular mission for the Museum that only he had the moral authority to envision and the precision of language to powerfully articulate.

Today the Museum embodies that bold and ambitious mission but the struggle for what some felt was the soul of the institution was not without debate and controversy in those early years. Ultimately, due to the power of his moral clarity, intellect and eloquence, it was Elie’s vision that would carry the day.

The Hall of Witness inside the US Holocaust Museum

The Hall of Witness inside the US Holocaust Museum

I visited the USHMM in the year 2000 and wrote about it on a section of my website here: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/USHMM/index.html

I previously blogged about the USHMM here:

I wrote about the exhibits in the museum, in the year 2000, on my website at

The main purpose of the USHMM is to indoctrinate American students in worship of the Jews. When I was there, in the year 2000, I did not see one person whom I could identify as Jewish. The Museum exists to indoctrinate the goyim.

  1. In a talk given to a group of Cub Scouts by Elie Wiesel about his time in Auschwitz and Buchenwald concentration camps, the author discussed humor in the concentration camps and the macabre forms it sometimes took: “Knock, knock. Whose there? Guess. Guess who? Gestapo, you prevaricating old picklesnoot. The jig us up!”
