SPECIAL  EXHIBIT AT THE HOLOCAUST MUSEUM

Obviously she's been to the Holocaust Museum, but has not seen their new Special exhibition on the lower level. The subtitle of the exhibition is "Americans and the Holocaust: What Did Americans Know? What more could have been done? I saw it recently and am planning to go back again and again. The brief blog succinctly states "this exhibition is a portrait of American society that shows how the depression, isolationism, xenophobia, racism, and anti-Semitism shape responses to Nazi-ism and the Holocaust. It reveals how much information was available to American at the time and ask why rescuing to not become a priority, except for a few individuals who to the risk to help. You can learn more about it at ushmm.org/americans.

IT IS A MUST SEE IN THIS CRITICAL PERIOD IN OUR COUNTRIES HISTORY

and remember that more free events can be found weekly at the following Internet locations
  • Of course the most complete listing easily available to all in the D. C. community is THE CURRENT NEWSPAPER -  It's distributed throughout the city on Thursday.  Giving about 30 minutes to this each week would enable you to discover almost all the events I've culled for the listing for five or so years.
  • Most government and cultural agencies have mailings and Internet listings of free events.  They can easily be made available to you weekly and monthly.  A list of just a few of those I have used are:
    • NATIONAL ARCHIVES
    • VARIOUS SMITHSONIAN MUSEUMS
    • NATIONAL GALLERY OF ART
    • POLITICS AND PROSE BOOKSTORE
    • LIBRARY OF CONGRESS
    • MANY EMBASSIES
    • MANY LOCAL AND EVEN NATIONAL UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES
      • George Washington University
      • Georgetown University
      • American University
      • Johns Hopkins University
Happily moving to the Kennedy-Warren Building still in beloved Cleveland Park, I'm again encouraged to do more Ranting and Raving as a 92 year oldster.  You can check those thoughts out at
