In communities around the world, law enforcement personnel help protect and defend democratic values while helping to keep the peace in communities around the world. As the Nazi Party implemented its campaign of hate and violence against Jews, police and military helped enforce laws that violated the ideals of service and protection.

The Museum invites law enforcement personnel to participate in programming to examine the roles played by their historical counterparts in Nazi Germany—including those who cooperated and those who did not. Join us for a discussion with today’s law enforcement leaders to learn how Holocaust history is helping new recruits and veteran officers better understand their own professional and individual responsibilities.

Marcus Appelbaum, Director, Law, Justice, and Society Initiatives, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
Charles H. Ramsey, Commissioner (Ret.), Philadelphia Police Department and former Chief, Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia


Presented by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in partnership with the Jewish Museum of Maryland, Baltimore Jewish Council, Baltimore Hebrew Congregation, and The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore.

Inspired by the success of our Great Chicken Soup Cook Off the JMM couldn’t resist the opportunity to stage another culinary championship! This year’s star is everyone’s favorite Jewish side dish – Kugel! Once again we invite Maryland’s greatest amateur cooks from newbies to bubbies to participate in this important statewide search: The Great Kugel Cook Off of 2017!




Even if you choose not to compete we encourage you to join us at the JMM for a day dedicated to kugel with tastings, activities for the whole family, tips from professionals and the announcement of Maryland’s greatest kugel.
