The Holocaust Memorial Museum was made for the people, so they could learn about the Holocaust.  The Holocaust comes from the Greek ὁλόκαυστον holókauston: holos, "completely" and kaustos, "burnt", this museum honors all of the people that died in the holocaust. The Holocaust also brought a new word to the English, genocide did not exist before 1944, it means violent crimes committed against groups with the intent to destroy the existence of the group.

The U.S honors them because they were innocent people that suffered a lot before they died, or survived. It was build by the architect James Ingo Freed. James visited many holocaust sites like camps and ghettos so the museum looks like them. What called most of my attention in this museum were the videos, how this crazy doctor used people for trying out some crazy experiments. What if found out interesting was the stories of some people that lived in the time of the Holocaust. It showed how much they suffered, seeing how people killed their family and how they felt, also how much they suffered and if they died or if they survived.

I felt sad because a lot of people had died just because they were Jew. I was surprised when I saw all of the shoes of the people that were killed. I really liked the museum it gave me a lot of information and it is really accurate.
