United States Holocaust Memorial Museum 20th Anniversary Tour
Date: February 17, 2013
For 20 years, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has inspired citizens and leaders worldwide to think and act differently by confronting hatred, preventing genocide, and promoting human dignity.
On the occasion of its 20th anniversary, the Museum is mounting a four-city, national tour to bring the history of the Holocaust to audiences across the country, introducing them to the Museum�s work, and inspiring people to take action against indifference today. The Tour will make its stop in Los Angeles on February 17 at the Skirball Cultural Center.
�Main Stage Programs: A series of noted leaders will explore why the Holocaust happened, why some people chose to act in the face of hatred and danger, and what we can learn from their actions today.
�Interactive Workshops: Guests will have the opportunity to engage in interactive sessions focused on individual responsibility and how individual action can overcome indifference and prevent future atrocities.
�Film, Video and Theatre: Visitors will have the exclusive opportunity to view films and historical footage rarely shown outside of the Museum�s walls, including the �Testimony� film from the Museum�s Permanent Exhibition.
�Family Workshops: The Museum will offer a range of services � family history research, highlights from the Museum�s �World Memory Project� and special programming for younger generations like �Time Capsule in a Milk Can: Emanuel Ringelblum and the Secret Archives of the Warsaw Ghetto,� a one-man theatrical performance for middle school-age students.
