At first glance the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

At first glance, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s “rejection of ‘analogies between the Holocaust and other events’ might seem like a laudable attempt to affirm the unprecedented character of the mass murder of the Jews of Europe. In fact, it makes conveying the weight of that atrocity impossible, and it releases us from any obligation, as a nation, to self-criticism.”  (The Washington Post, 6/19/19;  The New York Review of Books, 7/1/19; Slate, 7/12/19)
