Join the Museum and trip chairs Dee Dee and Eliot Simon of St. Louis, Missouri, as we travel to Austria and Hungary to take an in-depth look at Holocaust history in these countries and meet with community leaders, survivors, and experts, including Museum partners and former fellows. We will visit new exhibitions in Austria that impart the lessons of the Holocaust to new generations and represent that country’s efforts to come to terms with its past. In contrast, we will highlight important endeavors in Hungary to combat the dramatic rise of contemporary antisemitism there and the distortion of history by the current government.
