The Museum’s programs and resources for military personnel encourage reflection and discussion on leadership, decision making, and genocide prevention. Through examination of the Holocaust and in particular the German military, military members gain fresh insight into their own professional and individual responsibilities and explore ways in which they can work to prevent mass atrocities today.
Learn about the role of the German military during the Holocaust and access case study resources for instructors.
This poster set highlights the experiences of men and women in the US military who saw firsthand evidence of Nazi atrocities in April 1945.
These materials reflect US and international efforts to prevent and respond to genocide today and may be of particular interest to military and government professionals.
