Join Museum Founding Chairman Elie Wiesel, US and European officials, and thousands of Museum friends and supporters on Monday, April 29, 2013, in Washington, DC, to honor Holocaust survivors and World War II veterans and mark the Museum’s 20-year milestone. This will most likely be the last gathering on this scale of the people who lived this history. In recognition of this momentous occasion, the Museum will be closed to the public. Highlights will include:

  • A tribute ceremony on the Museum’s Eisenhower Plaza honoring survivors, veterans, and rescuers, including several international delegations.
  • An Open House with special programs, tours, and family activities throughout the Museum as well as a memorial names reading and an exclusive preview of the Museum’s newest exhibition, Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration and Complicity in the Holocaust. The Museum’s curators and archivists will be available to review collections and assist attendees with family research.
  • Opportunities for those from the same prewar community, ghetto, camp, or military division to reunite.
