“On March 6, the NRE delegation visited the Holocaust Museum in D.C. It was great to meet some people from D.C. and Northern Virginia who are also going on the trip. The last time I had been to the museum was in eighth grade for school, when I didn’t know much about the Holocaust or Judaism. This time around, I took the tour a lot more seriously and stopped to look and read more of the panels,” writes Josh Meliker, who will be participating in the Jewish Community Center’s 2011 March of the Living experience.
