This event has been canceled. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is closely monitoring the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19 (the coronavirus). The safety and well-being of our event attendees, program participants, and staff are our highest priority. Thank you for your understanding. We appreciate your interest in the Museum and hope you will join us at a future program.

Join us for a discussion about the Museum’s Sephardic Communities Initiative, which collects and preserves original artifacts from Sephardic Jews and their descendants. Hear some of the compelling stories that the documents, photographs, and other original materials reveal. Learn how you can play a role in ensuring that these stories are preserved for posterity.
