Extremist beliefs and violence are on the rise. White supremacist and other hate groups exploit antisemitic myths, racism, and conspiracy theories often directly inspired by Nazi ideology. When hatred and deception go viral, they can appeal to more mainstream audiences. Holocaust history warns us of the violence that can follow when such threats go unchecked.

Join the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum to discuss the dangers posed when extremist ideas are normalized and what is being done to challenge them.


  • Dr. Edna Friedberg, Historian, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
  • Dr. Arie Kruglanski, Holocaust survivor and distinguished university professor in Psychology at the University of Maryland
  • Vidhya Ramalingam, Founder and CEO, Moonshot

This program is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Although the in-person component will take place in Florida, it will also be live-streamed.
