Join us at the table and explore America's story in the words of those who lived it.

Register for "FDR, WWII and The Holocaust"

March 8, 2024, 8:30 AM CT - 2:30 PM CT | Hosted by: The Missouri State Museum - Jefferson Landing Department of National Resources - Jefferson City, MO - Discussion Leader: David Krugler

The Holocaust was the greatest horror of World War II. When the Allies obtained evidence of Nazi Germany's genocide of Europe's Jewish population, how did the Allied leaders, especially President Franklin Roosevelt, respond to the Holocaust? Did the Allies attempt to disrupt the death camps' operations? Could the Allies have done more? How much coverage did the genocide receive in the United States and how did the public respond? Join us as we address these questions.

All attendees of this free professional development will receive lunch, a letter of attendance as well as paper and digital copies of the reader. 


Teaching American History
"It gave me a better understanding of the Founders’ views. They saw that restricting religious liberty is not only wrong; it leads to animosity within society. This year, I will begin both my government class and my class on “Law and Modern Society” with George Washington’s Letter to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport." — Sean B.
