Appelbaum’s exhibition design for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum was recognized with the 1997 Presidential Award for Design Excellence, an award that honors those projects that represent the highest standards of federal design in architecture, design, and engineering. The design interprets the Holocaust for the American public through artifacts and oral testimonies woven together with photographic and other documentary evidence.
