Five years ago, white supremacists marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, to protest the removal of Confederate statues.Their flaming torches, racist and anti-Jewish slogans, and threats of violence stunned many Americans. A day later, one counter-protester was killed and others were injured. Since then, self-proclaimed neo-Nazis have drawn new recruits with the viral spread of conspiracy theories that stoke division and myths of white power and replacement. Join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum live on Facebook to learn about the history of beliefs that once seemed fringe and today fuel hatred and violence.
