The visual and spoken testimony of activists and journalists has the power to enrich our understanding of other countries, cultures, and peoples. It also documents groups at risk when there is still time for the world to act. With its mandate to alert the national conscience to genocide and crimes against humanity, the US Holocaust Memorial Museum relies on the evidence these professionals collect to bring to light stories of destruction and devastation. Join us for a discussion with those who put themselves in harm’s way to bear witness to mass atrocities.
