Around the world, antisemitism, religious persecution, and violent extremism are on the rise, and each threatens the stability and freedoms that democratic leaders are working to preserve. On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, join us for a discussion with several European ambassadors about how we can use the lessons of the Holocaust to help combat extremism, as well as stand up to antisemitism and violence against religious minorities.
We will examine what governments are doing and still need to do to educate young people, counter hate speech, and create economic opportunity while maintaining secure borders capable of protecting citizens and offering safe harbor to refugees.
Gérard Araud, Ambassador of France to the United States
David O'Sullivan, Ambassador of the European Union to the United States

The Museum is located on the National Mall, just south of Independence Avenue, SW, between 14th Street and Raoul Wallenberg Place (15th Street) in Washington, DC.
We strongly advise visitors to take the Metro (subway) to the Museum as public parking in the area is very limited.
The nearest Metro stop is Smithsonian (orange, silver, or blue line), located one block east of the Museum. Exit the station at 12th Street and Independence Avenue and walk one block west on Independence to 14th Street. Cross 14th Street and turn left; the Museum is the second building on your right.
The Museum has no public parking facility, but there is a paid parking lot located on D Street, SW, between 13th and 14th Streets, and some metered parking along Independence Avenue.
For vehicles bearing the appropriate access tags, the National Park Service has designated approximately ten accessible parking spaces at and around the Washington Monument, along Independence Avenue west of 14th Street, and at the Tidal Basin parking lot.
Please note that the Museum may be recording and photographing this event. By your presence you consent to the Museum's use of your image.
