Why Support the Museum

Americans and the Holocaust Initiative

Share

Marking its 25th anniversary year, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum opened a new exhibition, Americans and the Holocaust, examining the motives, pressures, and fears that shaped Americans’ responses to Nazism, war, and the persecution and murder of Jews in Europe during the 1930s and ‘40s. The exhibition honors the mandate in the institution’s founding charter that the Museum put special emphasis on Americans’ responses to the Holocaust.

Americans and the Holocaust will be featured at the Museum until 2021 and is part of a larger institutional initiative that includes an online exhibition, educational resources, public programs, and more. The Museum is grateful to the generous donors that contributed to the initiative and helped make this work possible.
