    In 1980, Congress voted unanimously to create the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum adjacent to the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The museum is the United States’s national institution for the documentation, study, and interpretation of Holocaust history and serves as the national memorial to the victims of the Holocaust.

    The museum is supported by a combination of government and private funds. In Fiscal Year 2003, the budget was $57.2 million ($38.4 Federal; $18.8 private). The museum has 200,000 members.


    Question: should taxpayers be forced to contribute to a museum dedicated to an alleged event that happened on the other side of the world. And involved people who where not even Americans?

    I just feel that the American Indians should have a large museum dedicated to their almost complete genocide that happened right here in our nation.

    Instead of a taxpayer funded museum dedicated to non Americans who lived in Europe.
