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.

Remember.

  1. 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.
