Please join us on this special evening as we feature the work of the Museum’s Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide and its steadfast dedication to global action and international response.

We will hear from Naomi Kikoler, the granddaughter of Holocaust survivors and deputy director of the Simon-Skjodt Center, and Mouaz Moustafa. He is an eyewitness to the conflict in Syria and the executive director of the Syrian Emergency Task Force and political director of United for a Free Syria. Their accounts prompt us to consider our obligations to those threatened by mass atrocities today.
