POSTPONED: 25th Anniversary Dinner
Sunday, August 23, 2020
The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis
As the Holocaust Museum & Learning Center’s 25th anniversary approaches, one way we will honor the milestone is with a special logo. It appears here on this page and will be used on letters, event programs, and our website. The year 2020 will mark a quarter century since the Museum opened. Commemorative events will occur through the year, so stay tuned for details in the coming months.
Since the Museum opened, it has welcomed half a million visitors from nearly all 50 states and many countries around the world. Even more have online access to our oral histories and other information.
“We look forward to continuing our tradition of using the lessons of the Holocaust to empower our guests to speak out against hatred, discrimination, and injustice,” said Jean Cavender, Museum Director. “We look forward to a very special year.” More information about the event is forthcoming.
