United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

http://www.ushmm.org/

One of my lasting takeaways from our 2010 visit to the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC was a variation of an excerpt from a speech by Protestant Pastor Martin Niemöller, inscribed on a wall near the exit:

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me.
