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.

Speakers
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.
