Field Trip – Keller Style, Part 7

Day 4: in which we tour the Holocaust Museum and briefly buzz thru the Air & Space Museum the last hour it’s open.

There was a quote that stopped me in my tracks.  Hitler in 1939:  “Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?”  He spoke this within 20 years of 1-1.5 million Armenians being slaughtered and was so arrogantly confident of the ignorance and apathy of the world.  May we never forget the atrocities of the Holocaust.

After the Holocaust Museum, we quickly walked over to the Air & Space Museum.  Quickly.  Because it was superduperawfully COLD & WINDY and because there was only an hour left before the museum closed for the day.  We passed all this prettiness in the glowy, golden hour light …

You sure managed to fire off some great shots while quickly walking! The scaffolding was actually pretty cool. You Kellers know how to pack in the adventures--but I am sure you could really never have enough time in D.C.

Looks like you all had a wonderful trip and it looks like you were the perfect "historian" capturing memories of you time together :)

That quote is eery.

Kaish and Jonny and I were just talking about the holocaust tonight. Did I tell you that Jonny's Great Grandmother, who watches baby Max, lived through that? She speaks Polish, so Jonny has to interpret when we talk and he never wants to more than a few minutes. Her stories make me cry.

I love that you had this trip with your family.
