“A memorial unresponsive to the future would violate the memory of the past,” wrote Museum Founding Chairman Elie Wiesel. Since its creation 25 years ago, the Museum has sought to be a voice for the victims of genocide today that the Jews of Europe did not have in the 1930s and ’40s. Join us to learn more about this critical aspect of the Museum’s mission and its recent work to bring attention to the plight of victims fleeing atrocities committed by ISIS in northern Iraq and the Assad regime in Syria.
