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.
