Although I am VERY cognizant of the holocaust since my family is from Poland and lived through the slaughter, I am continuously disappointed no matter where I travel and visit these holocaust museums, that somehow the FACT that millions of Catholics and other religious groups were slaughtered during the holocaust is forgotten. This place was no different. Hardly any mention is made of the millions of Catholics that died in Poland. WHY? The holocaust was NOT just a Jewish problem. In addition, Judaism is a beautiful and old religion with a magnificent history, however being a Jew is not a "nationality" - it is a religion. Most of the Jews, Catholics and other religious denominations that were slaughtered during WW2 were Polish. We really should acknowledge that millions of Polish People were slaughtered during WW2, not just Jews. I keep hoping and I keep getting disappointed that someday someone will remember ALL of the PEOPLE that died during WW2 and make a true holocaust museum, not just museums that discuss people who were of the Jewish Faith. The museum however did have beautiful displays but I rated it as poor as the whole story of the holocaust is not given. My mother who was NOT a Jew spent 5 years in a slave labour camp and my uncle spent, also not a Jew, spent nearly 6 years in Auschwitz, so I still feel hurt when all of the other Poles who suffered are ignored. I know I am jaded but I keep hoping for a "total story" being told some day. Maybe in the 22nd Century? I don't know.
