From Citizens to Outsiders: Burma’s Path to Genocide
Join HIAS for a virtual tour of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s new online exhibit “Burma’s Path to Genocide” with former political prisoner and Rohingya activist Wai Wai Nu, exhibit curator Greg Constantine, policy expert Andrea Gittleman, advocate Hannah Weilbacher, and Elisha Wiesel, Former Wall Street Executive and only child of Holocaust survivor, author, and Nobel laureate, Elie Wiesel z"l. Learn more about how the Rohingya, a religious and ethnic minority in Burma, went from citizens to outsiders and became targets of a sustained campaign of genocide.

Together, we will explore the history of persecution in Burma and the personal stories of various Rohingya individuals who survived the violent attacks in 2017 that resulted in hundreds of thousands of Rohingya people fleeing to neighboring Bangladesh. We will also receive an update on the situation in Burma and the refugee camps in Bangladesh and what you can do to help.
