In commemoration of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s 20th anniversary, there have been events across the country to honor World War II vets and survivors, a generation that is fast disappearing. Since opening in 1993, the museum has had about 35 million visitors from all over the world. Nobel Prize winner, Writer, and Holocaust Survivor, Elie Wiesel, envisioned a museum — a place where people would go and learn something. There are about 16,000 objects preserved there. Among the exhibits: One of the actual cattle cars that transported Jews and others deemed “undesirable” by the Nazis to forced labor camps and gas chambers. Brenda Fraser stops in to talk to Vern and Aprille about what it all means.
