up the muck and sanitize rooms that were affected. We expect them to

Days of Remembrance Ceremony
From April 11 through April 18, the Museum is leading the nation's annual Days of Remembrance commemorating the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust as well as the millions of other victims of Nazi persecution.
This year marks the 65th anniversary of the end of World War II, and we will pay tribute to the U.S. soldiers who helped defeat Nazi Germany and liberate Holocaust survivors from years of suffering. These stories of freedom remind us that individuals have the power to make a difference. What we do-or choose not to do-matters.
