Since the summer of 2014, the self-proclaimed Islamic State, or ISIS, has carried out a vioent campaign against civilians in Ninewa province in northern Iraq, home to many of Iraq's ethnic and religious minorities. These actions have decimated millenia-old communities and irrevocably torn the social fabric of the once-diverse region. Join us for a conversation about what the United States' genocide determination means now and what can be done for civilians in Iraq.

South Sudan is at risk of genocide, according to the United Nations Special Advisor on the Prevention of Genocide. A steady process of ethnic cleansing is underway in several areas of the country, through starvation, gang rape and the burning of villages, the U.N. Commission on Human Rights warned in South Sudan last week. In the wake of the de-facto collapse of the 2015 peace deal, new action is needed urgently to prevent further deterioration in South Sudan’s humanitarian, political, economic and security crises.

Please join the U.S. Institute of Peace and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum on December 8 for a discussion with experts about the risks for mass violence and options for upholding the shared U.S. and global responsibility to prevent genocide.

ISIS has threatened global security by capturing territory, enslaving minorities, and killing civilians. It has targeted ethnic and religious minorities in Iraq and Syria, prompting the US government to declare that the terrorist group is committing genocide. These atrocities have spurred the current tide of refugees that is overwhelming Europe and has left hundreds of thousands of people displaced.

Cameron Hudson, director of the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide, will join expert panelists for a discussion moderated by Clifford Chanin of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.

How can we seek justice for Holocaust victims whose property was taken and lives were torn apart? In her new book, former BBC investigative journalist Dina Gold describes the Nazi seizure of her family’s stately six-story building and her extensive battle to reclaim it and rebuild their legacy.

The property served as the headquarters of the H. Wolff fur company, one of the most successful international businesses in Germany. The Nazis forced the sale of the building on Krausenstrasse 17/18, and after World War II, it fell in the Soviet sector of Berlin, two blocks from Checkpoint Charlie, and beyond legal reach.

Join us to learn about the ongoing challenges of restitution and the Museum’s resources that individuals like Gold have used to research the fate of family members and that others have used to build legal cases, including the Holocaust Survivors and Victims Database and the International Tracing Service archive.

Since its outbreak in March 2011, the conflict in Syria has cost the lives of more than 400,000 people, displaced more than 10 million people, and been punctuated by systematic and widespread atrocities and crimes against humanity. As the Assad regime continues its attacks on Syrian civilians, the flow of refugees escaping violence is putting new pressure on the security, economic, and diplomatic challenges in the region and beyond. Join us for a discussion about the longest humanitarian crisis since the Holocaust and options for response.

Speakers: 

  • Norman Eisen, a Visiting Fellow in Governance Studies, Brookings Institution; and former United States Ambassador to the Czech
  • Republic Mouaz Moustafa, Executive Director for Syrian Emergency Task Force and Political Director for United for a Free Syria
