6. History of the Museum

Print this page

Remains of a two year old Davidian child, Mt. Carmel Doe 51A, photographed on May 7, 1993, just 18 days after alleged date of death.  The remains have never been identified.

The Waco Holocaust Electronic Museum was founded on April 19, 1996, and is sponsored by Public Action, a news and news analysis service.  The Museum project is an outgrowth of the ad hoc citizens group, Waco Remembrance, which in 1994 and 1995 organized demonstrations to commemorate the Waco Holocaust.

On April 19, 1995, Waco Remembrance held a memorial for the dead Davidians on the walk outside the FBI building in Washington, D.C.  Photo, CNN, August 7, 2013 with the caption, "Andrew Williams holds up a sign depicting the scene at the Branch Davidian compound during a rally at the FBI Building in Washington on April 19, 1995.  The rally was in remembrance of the Branch Davidians killed during the siege."
On October 4, 1996, Version 1.1 was released with ten additional Autopsy Reports, including the reports for the remains allegedly found on the roof of the concrete room.  It also has fixes for a number of missing links, typographical and grammatical corrections, and links to an anonymous ftp site containing the complete Museum in pkzip files.  The http download files are still available, reduced in size (but multiplied in number), containing exactly the same material (see the Museum Download Page for details).

Versions 2 and 2.1 followed with in 2001 with further upgrades.

On April 19, 2018, Version 3 was published, with all the autopsies rescanned to PDF files in high definition, pages reformatted for more pleasing and readable appearance, new exhibits added, and a number of corrections to the text.

Please bear in mind that the Museum is an ongoing project.  Your comments and critiques are welcome and appreciated, but not all queries or comments can be answered personally or in a timely fashion.  The Museum's E-Mail address is (valentine.carol@mail.com).  Postal mail should be directed to Public Action, 16541 Redmond Way, Suite 1012C, Redmond, WA 98052.
