Elie Wiesel serves as the honorary chair of the Museum's campaign, which will allow the Museum to make critical investments to keep Holocaust memory alive and inspire people worldwide to confront hate, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity.
The Museum is greatly concerned about the alarming worldwide rise in antisemitism. This unique hatred has manifested itself in societies around the globe and presents a serious danger to Jews and others as well.
In the Museum’s archives, David Bayer found documents about his Holocaust experiences, including the last time he was with his parents and siblings before they were killed. Through the World Memory Project, you can help make historical records searchable online for free.
In April 1946, Jews in Europe celebrated the first Passover after the defeat of Nazi Germany. Created by survivors and published by the Third US Army, the Survivors' Haggadah incorporates elements of the traditional Passover text with the recent experiences of Holocaust survivors.
