Americans and the Holocaust

It has been 8 decades since the end of World War II and despite all those years having past, Jews continue to struggle with the unanswered questions of why the United States did not openly condemn the Nazi government earlier and provide increased assistance to those who needed to escape Europe. This powerful new multimedia exhibit presents an objective look at how isolationism, xenophobia, the Depression and the strong antisemitic public attitude in the United States influenced the country’s response to the Nazi machine.

Price: $50 per person

includes: r/t coach bus transportation; breakfast and snacks; talk at museum

Please note that, due to the sensitive nature of this trip, it is restricted to age 17 and older.

  • We will leave from and return to Beth Chaim.

  • The day will begin at the Holocaust Museum as a staff person provides an overview of this new exhibit. Participants will experience the exhibit and have time to see other parts of the Museum before we meet with a Museum staff person for a de-brief/question session.

  • We will then travel to Union Station (by bus) for a meal (at participants expense) before the bus departs D.C.
