In October of 1980, the American people, by a rare unanimous act of Congress, embraced a nobel cause – remembrance of the Holocaust. Along with Congress, two presidents – Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan – they set our course to create a living national m2016 emorial to the Holocaust in Washington, D.C. The goal is to ensure that all Americans know of this dark chapter in human history in order to underscore our national commitment to human rights and human dignity.
