President Visits Holocaust Museum

In his first appearance as president at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, Barack Obama paid his respects to all of the genocide victims at the museum's Hall of Remembrance before addressing dozens of survivors, dignitaries and members of congress. Obama and survivor Elie Wiesel paused on their way in, bowed their heads and lit several candles for a moment of silence and remembrance. Wiesel called upon the international community to not let history repeat itself, pointing specifically to Iran.
