A Brief History

Today, January 27th, 2021 is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.  On this day, we commemorate the tragedy of the Holocaust, the genocide that resulted in the deaths of 6 million Jews and 11 million others.

Digging Deeper

This playlist presents a variety of videos by myself and my colleagues on the history of anti-Semitism before, during, and after the Holocaust.

The preceding videos have covered just some of the tragic history of anti-Semitism.  It is our hope that through education, we can help prevent such tragedies from occurring again.  Question for students (and subscribers): What can be done today to eliminate anti-Semitism?  Please let us know in the comments section below this article and please feel welcome to donate to The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to help commemorate the victims of one of the worst genocides in human history while educating future generations about this tragedy in the hopes of preventing such horrors from occurring again.
