U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum - Committee on Ethics, Religion and the Holocaust

 

USHMM_100KThe United States Holocaust Memorial Council's legislation mandates Holocaust educational programming throughout the country in both religious and secular contexts. Because the religious community has a special interest in the Holocaust, a Committee on Ethics, Religion and the Holocaust was established to engage the various Christian organizations in the United States to fulfill that mandate.


Comprised of clergy and lay people from major church bodies and academic institutions, the Committee serves as a resource for individuals and groups grappling with the ethical and philosophical issues raised by the Holocaust and contemporary manifestations of antisemitism. The Committee provides information, feedback, and guidance to the United States Holocaust Memorial Council based on its experience working with the concerns of religious groups. The Committee takes special interest in how Christianity, Christian institutions, and the non-Jewish victims of the Holocaust are presented in the exhibitions and educational programs of the Museum.
