American Diplomacy and the Holocaust
:
The Roots of Hatred Explained in History and Interpreted in Art - SOLD OUT
Exhibit Opening Program featuring Bruce Gendelman and Arthur Berger

Did the United States initially give the Nazis a free hand in the mass murder of Europe’s Jews?

As the Nazis took power in Germany, we also had a new leader, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Arthur Berger, a retired senior official from the United States Department of State and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, will examine FDR and America’s reactions to the key pre-Holocaust events of the 1930s. Following this, artist Bruce Gendelman will offer his insights into how the history of the Holocaust and its relevance today inform his work.

  • Location: Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus
