The Reconstruction Era of American history was plagued by many problems. One of the most important problems being the recently released from slavery Freedmen. Freedmen were in a tricky situation in which they had just been released from their owner and had nowhere to go, but the Federal Government made many successful attempts to help them out. The Government helped alleviate all the problems Freedmen had from their finances to basic needs and rights, and in doing so, made the period of reconstruction more helpful than harmful for Freedmen. The events of reconstruction were helpful to freedmen as they were not only freed from slavery, they were given rights directly from the federal government.
Bryan Stevenson knew the perils of injustice and inequality just as well as his clients on death row.

It may not seem like it, but the Jewish Documentation Center saved many lives by fighting crime through documents. This process brought many Jews to freedom and shows consequences of action, because a lot of people who went through with the Documentation Center lost their lives trying to help.

The Museum of Tolerance, also known as The Jewish Documentation Center, is important for people to remember because it holds very important information and events that were held during the Holocaust.
