Join us for a powerful conversation with witnesses to genocides nearly 80 years apart: Holocaust survivor Louise Lawrence-Israëls and Rohingya leader Wai Wai Nu. This discussion will be moderated by Naomi Kikoler, director of the Museum's Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide.

This conversation will shine a light on the ongoing persecution of the Rohingya in Burma and the unique perspective and voice that Holocaust survivors can bring to contemporary issues. In March 2022, Secretary of State Antony Blinken chose the Museum as the site to announce the US government's determination of genocide in Burma. It was there that Louise and Wai Wai first met.
