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 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 July 1, 2017, Version 3 was published, with all the original images (that were available) rescanned in high definition, all the Davidian autopsies rescanned to PDF files in high definition, pages recoded for more pleasing and readable appearance, and a number of corrections to the text.

Please bear in mind that the Museum is in its fledgling stage.  It is continuously expanding as materials are added.  Your comments and critiques are welcome and appreciated, but due to the volume of response, not all queries or comments can be answered personally or in a timely fashion.  The Museum's E-Mail address is (Curator@Public-Action.com).  Postal mail should be directed to Public Action, PO Box 15430 Wedgwood Station, Seattle, WA 98115.
