The Role of Education and Media In Combating Antisemitism

The Paley Museum, 25 West 52 Street, NYC

One of the greatest challenges facing the effort to combat antisemitism is the staggering lack of knowledge about the Holocaust among young people today. A recent study found that 63% of American Millennials did not know that six million Jews were murdered during World War II, among other disturbing statistics. To combat this ignorance, on August 10, 2022, the New York Governor signed into law a bill that requires students across the state to receive a meaningful education on the Holocaust.  In commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, The Paley Center for Media convenes leaders from education, politics, media, and cultural organizations to examine the vital role education and media play in enabling conversations that  confront the horrors of the Holocaust and help to combat antisemitism.

This program is made possible by generous support from Shari Redstone, Aryeh and Elana Bourkoff.
