Cudo's to the Imperial War Museum  for its treatment of the Holocaust.
Starting on a separate floor in the Museum, stressing its singularity, it is less an emotional experience -- at least for me -- than a careful, brick by brick by brick exposition of what happened. It powerfully makes the case that genocide begins with hate speech, and the demonization of categories of people.
It demonstrates that industrial murder on the scale of the Holocaust could not have happened without the participation of hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people, and their governments.
A photograph  of a number of victims near the end of the exposition made me think that we owe it to them to look at their faces, and remember each of them as best we can.
