Feel like having a great, yet depressing day? The Museum of Tolerance should be a mandatory stopping point for all students. I've only been a couple of times, but every time I go I see droves of people experience an emotional rollercoaster and undergo an experience of self reflection, spiritual cleansing, and deep rooted empathy. If you haven't gone, GO.

Not only does it explore your own prejudices but it forces ou to view the United States and the bigotry within including the civil rights era. You are left understanding that the participation, by the ""ordinary citizen,"" in Germany of the ""Final Solution"" was terrifying. That the plotting, planning and execution of mass murder occurred at all levels of German society. NO, this is not an outing meant to entertain but to educate. Pathetically, we were never taught most of what you will view. Your tour guide enhances the experience.

You do feel emersed in the experience of this dreadful and historical period, but it can be depressing. It is a great way to learn about the Holocaust for people of all ages and backgrounds, which I enjoy, but I don't think my other half will return, he found it overwhelmingly depressing.
