Words of the Week: Holocaust Museums

“Hate crimes against American Jews have tripled since Hamas’ unprovoked terrorist attack against Israeli civilians on October 7th, 2023, with many of those crimes motivated by inaccurate allegations of genocide against Israel. Our mission to guard the memory of Holocaust Survivors and victims requires clarity on what does and does not constitute genocide, especially where misconceptions lead to hateful acts of antisemitism.”

From a joint statement issued by the Florida Holocaust Museum, Holocaust Center for Humanity, Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center, Holocaust Museum LA, The Holocaust and Humanity Center, The Zekelman Holocaust Center, and Museum of Jewish Heritage-A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in response to recent vandalism at Seattle’s Holocaust Center for Humanity.
