The Museum’s programs and resources for military personnel encourage reflection and discussion on leadership, decision making, and genocide prevention. Through examination of the Holocaust and in particular the German military, military members gain fresh insight into their own professional and individual responsibilities and explore ways in which they can work to prevent mass atrocities today.
- Critical factors that influence ethical decision making and command responsibility in complex environments
- The changing context for social and cultural military operations
- The dynamics of genocide and mass atrocities
About the Programs
More than 50,000 military professionals have participated in these Museum programs. We’ve worked with the US Naval Academy, the US Military Academy at West Point, the US Army Command and General Staff College, the Judge Advocate General Legal Center and School, the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute, and many other military training institutions.
Our current programing is geared toward instructors who want to incorporate materials about the Holocaust and genocide prevention into their courses.
If you’re an instructor and want to learn more about Museum programs and resources for military professionals, please contact Amanda Rooney Stierli at firstname.lastname@example.org.
