Special Convening: Protecting the Future of Holocaust Memory in an Era of Rising Antisemitism

On September 6, 2023, the USC Shoah Foundation held a public convening at which a high-level panel discussed threats to Holocaust memory caused by growing antisemitism and revisionist campaigns that deny and distort details of the Shoah.

The event brought together Lord Eric Pickles, the U.K. Special Envoy for Post-Holocaust Issues, and Ellen Germain, the U.S. State Department Special Envoy for Holocaust Issues, in conversation with USC Shoah Foundation Finci-Viterbi Executive Director Chair Dr. Robert J. Williams. The Special Convening was moderated by Tami Abdollah, a national correspondent for USA TODAY and a senior editor at Noema Magazine, and co-sponsored by the USC Shoah Foundation and the USC Dornsife Center for the Political Future.
