The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum commemorates its 20th anniversary with a national tour, including this stop at the Skirball Center.

Throughout the course of the day, people and programs will pay tribute to local Holocaust survivors and World War II veterans. Panel discussions will bring together historians, journalists and experts to explore why the Holocaust happened and what lessons it holds for us today.

Attendees will have opportunities to conduct Holocaust-era family research in the museum's extensive archives; bring historic photos, documents and artifacts to review with a museum curator; view Holocaust survivor testimonies and archival films rarely seen outside the museum; participate in a children's art project that will be displayed in Washington, D.C; and more.
