Eighty years since the Holocaust began, violent antisemitism remains a threat—as we witnessed at a Texas synagogue this month. The lessons of this history have never been more relevant and will be the focus of this solemn event marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day—designated by the United Nations to be January 27, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. We hope you will join us as survivors reflect on and honor the lives of Europe’s Jews—who were targeted for annihilation—other victims of Nazi persecution, and individuals who chose to help.
Also on January 27, at 9:30 a.m. ET, join us for The Difference between Life and Death: Choices That Saved a Young Boy. From the moment he was born in 1942 in Slovakia, Arye Ephrath was in danger. Join a live conversation and Q&A to learn how individuals sacrificed to help him survive the Holocaust. After the live broadcast, the recording will be available to watch on demand on the Museum’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
