The third floor of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights includes Poland's Lech Walesa and Tiananmen Square's anonymous "tank man."
A map in the museum's human rights exhibit shows the conditions of human rights across the globe. Six illuminated figures in the main room depict human rights defenders, while off to one side are human rights "villains," including Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet. The life-size images are pictured in black and while, standing against a wall, their height measured off in inches, as if in preparation for a mug shot.
