Candles at a Museum event. Leigh Vogel for the US Holocaust Memorial Museum

Please join members of the Museum community from across the country who are committed to its mission of teaching the history and lessons of the Holocaust. As our nation and the world face unprecedented challenges, these lessons—about the fragility of freedom and importance of social solidarity and our common humanity—can help us gain perspective during these difficult times.

The 30-minute gathering will feature Museum Director Sara Bloomfield and Maziar Bahari, the 2020 Elie Wiesel Award recipient. An Iranian exile who was later imprisioned by the regime, Bahari has demonstrated exceptional courage in bringing the truth of the Holocaust to Iran and throughout the Middle East. He has been a powerful voice against antisemitism and a fierce advocate for securing the dignity and freedom of all people. The program will close with Holocaust survivors’ messages for the future.
