When Extremist Ideas Are No Longer Considered “Extreme”

Event details
Calendar   Speaking Engagements
Location Virtual
Date Tue, Jun 6, 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Duration   1h

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 (USHMM) in person or virtually as they discuss the dangers posed when extremist ideas are normalized and what is being done to challenge them. This program is part of their award-winning Stay Connected Live series.

Sigal Mandelker, Former Under Secretary, Terrorism and Financial Intelligence at the US Treasury and Executive Committee Member, US Holocaust Memorial Council
