Jeshajahu Weinberg has been Director of the United States Holocaust Memorial museum in its planning phase and in the early stages of its operation. Mr. Weinberg is a world famous museum developer, who also created The Museum of the Diaspora in Israel.
Rina Elieli, Psy.D., was a consultant in staff development to the Director. She is a practicing psychoanalyst and educator in her native country of Israel.
Chiam Potok was born and raised in New York City. he has been writing fiction since the age of sixteen and is widely known for his novels, The Chosen (Edward Lewis Wallant Award), The Promise (Athaneum Prize), My Name is Asher Lev, In the Beginning, The Book of Lights and Davita's Harp. His most recent novel, The Gift of Asher Lev published in May 1990, won the National Jewish Book Award for Fiction.
Weinberg is the founding director of the museum, responsible for its planning phase and the first stages of its operation. Elieli is a consultant to Weinberg who participated in the museum's development. The authors give a brief history of the museum's creation (opened in April 1993 and visited by 5,000 people a day) and describe its architecture and exhibits in words and photographs. They discuss the planning team's commitment to historical truth in order to give the exhibits the highest degree of authenticity. There are hundreds of color and black-and-white photographs throughout the book--photos of kitchen utensils, hair, shoes, forged documents, artificial limbs, and luggage and prayer shawls confiscated from the victims. Haunting and terrifying are photos showing charred corpses of concentration camp inmates, a starved prisoner in Buchenwald, a young Jewish partisan woman being hanged in Minsk in 1941, Danish Jews escaping to Sweden on a small boat, and Hungarian Jews arriving in Auschwitz in 1944. The book provides a well-rounded history of every aspect of the Holocaust, a chilling representation of the museum itself. George Cohen
