Letters: Evocative Museum

As a combat veteran of World War II, I thought the U.S. had a great deal to do with stopping the German onslaught and with freeing prisoners from the horrible Nazi death camps. For this reason, I feel strongly that the proposed Holocaust museum for Washington ((DESIGN, June 29)) is wrong: it is the wrong place, wrong country, wrong time.

The Holocaust was horrendous. But we do not need a museum in Washington memorializing its victims. Architect James Ingo Freed's work would be highly appropriate in Jerusalem, where it would be more relevant.
