“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.

In his new book Why?, historian Peter Hayes explores what scholars know about the Holocaust, answering questions including: Why were Jews the primary victims? Why were Germans the instigators? Why did murder become the "Final Solution"? And, why didn’t the international community do more to help? Join us for a discussion with Hayes about the latest research and our evolving understanding of these crucial questions. The discussion will be followed by a book signing.

Peter Hayes is professor of history and German and Theodore Zev Weiss Holocaust Educational Foundation Professor of Holocaust Studies (emeritus) at Northwestern University. He also serves as chairman of the Museum’s Academic Committee.

Learn about these "Nazi hunters" whose dogged pursuit of justice helped bring criminals like Adolf Eichmann and Klaus Barbie to justice. Despite challenges and controversies, prosecutors worked tirelessly on behalf of the victims of the Holocaust—and laid the foundation for pursuing today’s perpetrators of genocide and crimes against humanity.

Speaker: Andrew Nagorski, Journalist and Author of The Nazi Hunters
