Time: 9 a.m.–5 p.m.

Location: Hilton New York1335 Avenue of the Americas New York, NY 10019

Event attendees in New York will have the opportunity to attend interactive workshops and panel discussions that will engage audiences with thought-provoking questions, such as "Who was responsible for the Holocaust?"

  • Peter Hayes : Editor of Lesson and Legacies: The Meaning of the Holocaust in a Changing World
  • Marvin Kalb : Journalist and Edward R. Murrow Professor of Practice Emeritus at the Harvard Kennedy School
  • Timothy Snyder : Historian and author of: Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin
  • Shankar Vedantam: National Public Radio science correspondent and author of the acclaimed book, The Hidden Brain

Museum curators will be on site to provide information on how to preserve Holocaust-era artifacts or donate personal collections as part of the Museum's ongoing work to rescue the evidence of the Holocaust. On-site family research and services will be available for survivors and their families. Rare films and historical footage from the Museum's collection that have never before the National Tour been seen outside the Museum's walls will be featured for special viewings.

An hour-long Tribute ceremony (from noon-1 p.m.) will honor New York-area Holocaust survivors and World War II veterans as they pass a challenge to new generations to always remember the victims and survivors, and to learn from the lessons of the Holocaust.

Attendance is free, but space is limited, so registration is required. For more information and to register, please visit www.ushmm.org/neveragain or call 866.998.7466.

Thousands of people from across the country and around the world will join Elie Wiesel, the Museum's founding chairman, at the National Tribute, which includes a dinner on April 28 and a daylong event at the Museum on April 29. On April 28, the Museum will present its highest honor, the Elie Wiesel Award, to Wladyslaw Bartoszewski of Poland, in recognition of all rescuers, and to Susan Eisenhower, granddaughter of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who is accepting on behalf of all World War II veterans.
