“With the rise in antisemitic incidents and the recent studies that have shown a general lack of knowledge about the Holocaust, it is critical to educate younger generations about the horrors of the past,” said Beth Kean, CEO of Holocaust Museum LA. “Our mission has always been to teach and inspire so this never happens again. Through our programs, we educate and connect students and survivors who often find common ground in their shared experience.”
Winkler added, “The Holocaust Museum exists so that we never forget.”
