The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is closely monitoring the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19 (the coronavirus). The health and well-being of our visitors, staff, and event attendees are our priority. As the situation evolves, we will update the Museum's operating status—including opening hours and program schedule—should it change.

In 1939, the Cuban government turned away the MS St. Louis, a passenger liner carrying 937 people—almost all of them Jews fleeing Nazi Germany. With the passengers refused safe haven in the United States as well, the ship returned to Europe. Scott Miller, former director of curatorial affairs and co-author of the book Refuge Denied: The St. Louis Passengers and the Holocaust, will discuss the Museum’s ten-year project to uncover the fate of every refugee.
