Holocaust survivors and veterans gathered in the District to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum with what was expected to be one of the last gatherings of such a large group of survivors.
Steen Metz puts on a brave face when he recalls his imprisonment in a Nazi concentration camp. Edith Hendel must wipe away her tears.
