President Clinton, President Herzog, and Mr. Wiesel spoke during the ceremony to dedicate the Holocaust Memorial Museum, located just south of the Washington Memorial. The museum, a memorial to the deaths of Jews killed in concentration camps by Nazis in World War II, was authorized by Congress in 1980 and built with private contributions on land donated by the government. In the ceremony, which also featured music from a local junior high school choir, the dignitaries noted the importance of remembering the attempted genocide of Jews by Hitler's Nazis. Mr. Wiesel also drew parallels between the holocaust and the current situation in Bosnia, where ethnic Muslims were under attack by Serbian militia. The ceremony ended with President Clinton, President Herzog, and Mr. Wiesel lighting an eternal flame outside the museum.
