A coalition of Central American survivors and descendents of victims of genocide and other atrocities have joined with Holocaust survivors and their descendents were shocked to recently learn that Elliott Abrams is a member of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Committee on Conscience, which seeks to “confront and work to halt acts of genocide or related crimes against humanity.”
Why has the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum not taken Abrams’ reprehensible role in Central America into account? How can the Committee on Conscience prevent future genocides if it has not come to terms with the involvement of one of its own members in supporting such atrocities?
Join them in demanding that the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum immediately remove Elliott Abrams as a member of its Committee on Conscience. You can read their full letter here: http://bit.ly/CallToConscience . His presence on that committee and his affiliation with the Museum runs contrary to everything that its mission stands for.
We must not allow Elliott Abrams’ bloody role in Central America to be buried in the past. Join survivors & witnesses of genocide in D.C. and demand that the Holocaust Museum Drop Abrams from their Committee on Conscience!
