Eternal flame at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum

Wiesenthal and Elie Wiesel differed in their opinions about paying tribute to Holocaust victims. Wiesenthal's view was to remember all 11 million victims of different nationalities who died at the hands of the Nazis, while Wiesel's view was that the Holocaust was "a Jewish tragedy with universal implications." Ultimately, the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., reflected Wiesel's view. In 1993, Wiesel (right), President Bill Clinton (center) and Harvey M. Meyerhoff (left) light an eternal flame outside the D.C. museum.
