2022 International Holocaust Remembrance Day
From Awareness to Action: Confronting Antisemitism At Home and Abroad
In commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, join Dr. Robert Williams, Deputy Director for International Affairs at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, for a discussion about how current conspiracy theories and tropes fuel antisemitism domestically and internationally, as well as how and why Holocaust education is one of many ways to combat it. Dr. Williams sits on the steering committee of the Global Task Force on Holocaust Distortion, and served for four years as chair of the Committee on Antisemitism and Holocaust Denial at the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance.
