When Extremist Ideas Are No Longer Considered "Extreme"

Event details
Calendar   Speaking Engagements
Location Virtual
Date Thu, Feb 16, 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Duration   1h 30m

Extremist beliefs and violence are on the rise. White supremacist and other hate groups exploit antisemitic myths, racism, and conspiracy theories often directly inspired by Nazi ideology. When hatred and deception go viral, they can appeal to more mainstream audiences. Holocaust history warns us of the violence that can follow when such threats go unchecked.

Join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to discuss the dangers posed when extremist ideas are normalized and what is being done to challenge them.

Dr. Edna Friedberg, Historian, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Dr. Arie Kruglanski, Holocaust survivor and distinguished university professor in Psychology at the University of Maryland

Vidhya Ramalingam, Founder and CEO, Moonshot
