The Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, founded in 1961 by Holocaust survivors and their families, serves stark contrast to the government-funded Museum of Tolerance due to the different stories they tell and different motives that they possess. The Museum of Tolerance is a good introduction for the average person who is not a scholar or is not necessarily extremely educated on the Holocaust and wants to begin to learn more about the issue. The exhibition at the Museum of Tolerance appeals to one’s emotions, rather than providing them with an overwhelming amount of information, so it is more likely to get people interested in learning more about the Holocaust. On the other hand, The Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust provides, what can be at times, an overwhelming amount of information, which is extremely useful for people who are educated on the Holocaust and want to learn even more. They also let the visitor…

This makes Holocaust films washed out because filmmakers don’t have another way to produce these types of films. Filmmakers also pushed Holocaust survivors to tell their stories even though…

    If you are looking for freedom, to state your own opinion without being severely punished, or to feel safe on the streets then Cuba is definitely not the place for you.

This man would not let the citizens of Cuba leave the country, and would also imprison those who even attempted to leave without permission or escape. Citizens at…
