The Holocaust Museum & Learning Center strongly condemns the loss of life and violence perpetrated by neo-Nazis and other white supremacist groups in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The rhetoric of hatred, racism and anti-Semitism exemplifies viewpoints that have no place in our society. The history and lessons of the Holocaust teach us that we must not remain silent when events like this occur.

Our thoughts are with the families of Heather Heyer, who was killed, and those injured during this tragic event.

The mission of the Holocaust Museum & Learning Center is: Through the lessons of the Holocaust, we inspire all people to confront hatred, promote human dignity and prevent genocide.
