Fueling Extremism in a Wired World
Public Program

5:00 p.m. Reception  |  6:00 p.m. Presentation

Nazis used radio; today’s extremists use social media. Then as now, new technology provides extremists with the unchecked ability to spread hate and prey upon disenfranchised audiences to realize their deadly agenda. How can societies counter these hateful messages and keep the world safe?

Steven Luckert, PhD, Senior Program Curator, Digital Learning and New Media, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
Amanda Nimmer, Associate Program Director, Quantum Communications

Robert Citino, PhD, Samuel Zemurray Stone Senior Historian, The National WWII Museum
