By now, all of us know well the dangers of unchecked prejudice and hatred. In spite of this knowledge, a growing tide of antisemitic acts and words is sweeping across our country–Jewish cemeteries and other memorials are being desecrated, 69 bomb threats have been made to dozens of Jewish Community Centers, Jewish students are threatened on our nations’ campuses, and anti-Jewish and anti-Israel social media rants are appearing with frightening regularity. The mission of the Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance is to teach the history of the Holocaust and advance human rights to combat prejudice, hatred, and indifference. In light of our mission, we call upon every American to become an Upstander; to take action against prejudice, hatred and indifference by speaking up against these acts whenever and wherever you can.
*The Museum purposely chooses to spell antisemitic this way.
