Online Exhibition—Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration and Complicity in the Holocaust
Explore how countless ordinary people, influenced by a spectrum of motives and pressures, acted in ways that aided the persecution and murder of Jews and other targeted groups within Nazi Germany and across Europe.
The word antisemitism means prejudice against or hatred of Jews. The Holocaust, the state-sponsored persecution and murder of European Jews by Nazi Germany and its collaborators between 1933 and 1945, is history’s most extreme example of antisemitism.
Nazi-sponsored persecution and mass murder fueled resistance to the Germans in the Third Reich itself and throughout occupied Europe. Although Jews were the Nazis’ primary victims, they too resisted Nazi oppression in a variety of ways, both collectively and as individuals.
With your support, this comprehensive campaign will allow the Museum to make critical investments to keep Holocaust memory alive as a relevant force for change—inspiring people worldwide to confront hate, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity.
How do we ensure that Holocaust memory remains a relevant, transformative force in the 21st century? The late Elie Wiesel, United States Holocaust Memorial Council Chairman Tom Bernstein, and Museum Director Sara Bloomfield talk about the challenges—and the opportunities we must seize—at this critical turning point.
