Among the magnificent arld

the museum are:
The Menorah; 500 years of
Jewish history are burned into
this giant menorah dramati-
cally displayed in the Hall of
Heroes. Looted from Hungary
by the Nazis and later recov-

minder of the indomitable
Jewish spirit and the heroic
achievements of Americans of
the Jewish faith.
The Eternal Light, a superb
hand-wrought lamp, looted
from a Hungarian Synagogue
by the Nazis and recovered
by American Occupation For-

the main chapel of the Shrine

those who paid the supreme

The facade of the Shrine is

windows illustrating the Bib-
