Speaker: Warren L. Miller, Chairman of the United States Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad

Location: Sixth & I Historic Synagogue; Washington, DC

The Holocaust resulted in the annihilation of much of Eastern Europe’s Jewish population. In many countries, no Jews were left to care for the Jewish communal properties. This destruction, desecration, and deterioration of properties continued under Communist regimes. This lecture discusses the challenge of protecting these sites and the threat to Jews worldwide from the growing threat of Holocaust deniers.
