This afternoon, tour the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. This somber and moving museum tells the story of the Holocaust through artifacts, films, photographs and oral histories.  The museum’s primary mission is to inform Americans about the Holocaust, to remember those who suffered, and to inspire visitors to contemplate the moral implications of their choices and responsibilities as citizens in an interdependent world. 

We continue onto visit the newly completed memorial to Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force in Europe during World War II and 34th US President. Designed by world-renowned architect Frank O. Gehry, this one-of-a-kind memorial and urban park is located near the U.S. Capitol along Independence Avenue, S.W. The space is defined by eight 80-foot stone-clad columns. Six columns support an artistically-woven stainless steel tapestry depicting the Pointe du Hoc promontory of France’s Normandy coastline in peacetime.  A life-size sculpture of Eisenhower as a young man begins the trajectory of his life as the quintessential American story.
