Law Enforcement and Society: Lessons from the Holocaust
This program enables law enforcement officers and recruits to examine the role their profession played in the Holocaust and challenges them to reflect upon their professional and personal responsibilities in a democracy. Whether a new recruit or a unit commander, participants are encouraged to examine their profession in a new light, exploring the history of the Holocaust and its implications for law enforcement today. Program discussions focus on choice, individual responsibility, and maintaining core values.
This program is presented in partnership with the Anti-Defamation League and was designed by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Health and Legal Professionals Program: Choices during the Holocaust
Using the Holocaust as a historical framework, this training encourages participants to discuss the concept of personal and professional choice. The program explores the role and impact of their profession during the Holocaust and challenges health and legal professionals to reflect upon their professional, ethical and personal responsibilities in our society.
Health and legal organizations, offices, and centers can schedule a personalized training day with one of our Museum Educators. The program includes a private docent-led tour of our exhibit, a Holocaust history presentation, and a personalized training session with one of our Museum Educators.
