The Suns took a private tour of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. on Thursday night. The Suns, in town to play the Washington Wizards, spent over two hours at the Museum touring the Permanent Exhibition and learning the history of the Holocaust and how it can relate to contemporary issues, including anti-Semitism and prejudice.

Josh Childress, Garrett Siler, Hakim Warrick interact with the Museum's From Memory to Action-Meeting the Challenge of Genocide installation, an interactive installation that uses cutting edge technology and compelling eyewitness stories to invite visitors to join a growing community of people taking action against genocide.
