The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum will be leading the nation in the Days of Remembrance on Tuesday with a virtual national commemoration.

“Seventy-five years ago this spring, U.S. and other Allied troops liberated camps across Nazi-dominated Europe,” said Museum director Sara J. Bloomfield. “Those brave individuals who defeated Germany and its allies, finally brought an end to the genocide of European Jews. We remember the six million Jewish men, women and children whose voices, hopes and dreams were silenced. Their struggles to retain their dignity and humanity in the face of unimaginable terror and violence, and their stories of defiance, resistance and resilience remind us of what is possible in moments of crisis.”
