The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (@HolocaustMuseum), opened in 1993, recently changed its no photography policy, and so, with a very good light sensitive camera, I went to take photographs, which I’m sharing (see below).
I’ve been several times before, and each time I learn and reflect more. In the intervening period of this visit, I’ve also been to Yad Vashem in Jerusalem and Beit Hatfutsot in Tel Aviv.
This time, I thought about behavior change techniques, effectively used, to deny diverse people control of their destiny, and then their lives.
I have a connection to the museum in that the space that I work, the Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health (@KPTotalHealth), was designed by the same firm that designed this space.
Do stop in when you visit Washington, DC, because these things really happened. What we do today matters.

It’s such a sickness. The idea that we would need this memorial SO badly, in this century, makes me feel sick – literally sick to my stomach. Powerful post, Ted, and pictures as always.
The caption under your photos: “It’s not what you do, it’s what you tolerate.” Best words I’ve heard to remind each other, about the perilous state of things in America at this moment.
