The Midwest Center for Holocaust Education condemns distorting the reality of the Nazi regime and Adolf Hitler. History matters. Facts matter. It is imperative that we reject those who promote revisionist views of the past and that we individually and collectively defend truth. As Holocaust historian Dr. Timothy Snyder warns us, “Post-truth is pre-facism.”

MCHE commends the many community, business, political, and faith leaders as well as individuals who have made definitive statements condemning antisemitism. Hatred, bigotry, and antisemitism have no place in our society, and we appreciate your shared commitment in this fight. We urge you to remain vigilant and proactive – your voice matters.
