The US Holocaust Memorial Museum turns 20, and Elie Wiesel and Bill Clinton were on hand to speak:

From Elie Wiesel:

We say to young people now you are our witnesses, because you will go beyond our lives. We say to young people, you are our hope, whatever we do now is not only for the sake of the past, but surely also for the sake of the future and you are our future.

From Bill Clinton:

We will always be able to come here, to remind us that no matter how smart a people are, if you have a head without a heart you are not human. That is, as direct memories fade away, that the records, the pictures and the stories never die.
