The Holocaust ended nearly 75 years ago, but persecution against religious minorities including Jews, Christians, Yazidis, Muslims, and others continues to this day.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and 21Wilberforce invite participants and attendees of the National Prayer Breakfast to hear from survivors of the Holocaust and other religious persecution.

A panel of leaders from Congress and organizations working with targeted groups will discuss patterns of persecution and opportunities for engagement from faith, civic, media, and political leaders in America and around the world. This includes:

  • Senators Lankford (R-OK) and Rosen (D-NV) the cochairs of the Senate’s Anti-Semitism Task Force

  • A Holocaust Survivor

  • An expert describing the role of the Church in responding to the Holocaust

  • A panel of six survivors of modern day persecution

  • A call to action for faith leaders to confront modern persecution

  • A special resource to tour the Museum with a focus on the response of the Church to the Holocaust
