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.

"What the museum stands for — and what many of you know firsthand — is the fragility of freedom and the courage and sacrifice necessary to preserve it," Mr. Bernstein said.
Tom A. Bernstein, chairman of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, said 843 survivors took part in Monday's ceremony along with 130 World War II veterans, some of whom helped to liberate concentration camp prisoners.
