  • The admission comes from the Book of Isaiah, and it's really a idiom, and the idiom means a permanent memorial.

  • This museum cuts into the mountains, and if you look at it, it looks something like a scar in the mountain of Remembrance.

  • And I think that's what the Holocaust really is in our world.

  • It's this thing and there were many years afterwards, but we remain with a sort of a scar.

  • It's a bit shocking as you walk in and you see these massive swastikas.

  • I think it's the flags.

  • But again, this is showing you something about what this period is.

  • I mean, you have to.

  • You can't just enter it like you enter a swimming pool slowly, you kind of dive into the period.

  • Where are these bricks from?

  • Well, this is a recreation of a street called Latino Street, which was the main artery in the ghetto Warsaw ghetto, the biggest of the ghettos.

  • And these are actual bricks that were used in the streets of Warsaw, along with the tram line that was there.

  • What do you want people to feel when they start walking into the ghetto?

  • We want them to have a small feeling maybe, of what crowded nous is and when they see the photos around to understand something about the suffering.

  • Because if you see the photos around you, you see tremendous suffering, especially if Children we're talking about people.

  • Knowing their names is important.

  • When you see their faces, you understand even more that we're talking about, not six million.

  • Some things.

  • We're talking about six million human beings, each with a family with a background, with something about them that's very human.

  • The suitcases are left with names and addresses and information.

  • Again, it's a personal thing.

  • Who doesn't understand traveling with a suitcase, so their heart rendering these things.

  • When you look at the items and you tie them to the story, you don't need to show photographs of atrocities to understand an atrocity.

  • Things were taken from them again, and shoes and shoes.

  • Okay, shoes look innocuous.

  • What?

  • Our shoes.

  • But understand who shoes these were and what happened to the owners of these shoes, and you begin to get something about a feeling of amount, of quantity, of, of everything that's going on here.

  • You can touch things here.

  • You can experience things in a different way.

  • What is this?

  • Well, look in the photograph.

  • This is a camp called Floss Enberg, where people were working in hard labor, digging out stones, and they were filling carts.

  • Right.

  • And this is one of the carts.

  • There are 1000 points of proof, 1000 things that you can experience here to show you a little bit.

  • Just a tad of what life was like.

  • Ultimately, we want people to understand that the Holocaust was caused by people.

  • It wasn't a cosmic event, and it wasn't monsters.

  • It was human beings who were motivated by ideas more than anything else.

  • And they brought about this Holocaust.

  • Which means we need to understand what those ideas were, what was motivating them, what brought them into this?

  • Because ultimately, we want to learn from the Holocaust from other genocides.

  • How do we go about preventing anything like this from happening to anyone anywhere else?

The admission comes from the Book of Isaiah, and it's really a idiom, and the idiom means a permanent memorial.
