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 as we discuss the dangers posed when extremist ideas are normalized and what is being done to challenge them. This program is part of our award-winning Stay Connected Live series. Although the in-person component will be at the Paley Center for Media in New York, the event is also accessible virtually.

Opening remarks:

  • Sigal Mandelker, Former Under Secretary, Terrorism and Financial Intelligence at the U.S. Treasury and Executive Committee Member, U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council


  • Dr. Edna Friedberg, Historian, U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum


  • Vidhya Ramalingam, Founder and CEO, Moonshot
  • Dr. David Webber, Associate Professor of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, Virginia Commonwealth University
