More than 200 guests joined the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s presentation of “Battleground for Truth: Confronting Antisemitism and Holocaust Denial” May 4 Temple Solel in Paradise Valley.
Panelists included moderator Brahm Resnik, anchor and reporter for KPNX 12 News, NBC affiliate in Phoenix; and museum speakers Aleisa Fishman, historian, Initiative on Holocaust Denial and Antisemitism, and Mina Abdelmalak, Arabic Audience Outreach Specialist, Initiative on Holocaust Denial and Antisemitism.
A conversation was held on the rising threat of antisemitism in Europe, the Arab world, and on U.S. college campuses.
Guests learned how the museum uses its powerful collections, educational resources and its network of scholars to combat distortion and denial of the Holocaust and offers direct access to evidence of Nazi crimes and atrocities.
The museum is in the midst of a $540 million national campaign, “Never Again: What You Do Matters,” to make critical investments to keep Holocaust memory alive as a relevant force for change.
