2021 Northeast Virtual Event

Share
As violent antisemitism escalates amid a larger climate of hatred, Holocaust education and its lessons have never been more relevant—and the Museum’s role as a global Holocaust educator more urgently needed. The Museum puts the power of history into the hands of scholars, educators, and students.

Join us to find out how educators around the country use Museum resources that humanize this history to help young people—our future leaders—think critically about the dangers of unchecked hate. The event will feature a conversation between the Atlantic Editor in Chief Jeffrey Goldberg and Museum Director Sara Bloomfield on "Holocaust History, Antisemitism, and Reaching New Audiences."

In 2020, he was named Editor of the Year by Adweek, which also named the Atlantic Magazine of the Year. Digiday recently stated that the Atlantic "is enjoying its most relevant cultural moment since the 19th century."

Before joining the magazine, Goldberg served as the Middle East correspondent and the Washington correspondent for the New Yorker, and was also a writer for the New York Times Magazine.
