|About||A living memorial to the Holocaust, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (www.ushmm.org) inspires citizens and leaders worldwide to confront hatred, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity.|
The purpose of this Facebook page is to share information about Museum programs and resources; memorialize the Nazis’ victims; launch discussion about the Holocaust and its relevance today; and raise awareness that antisemitism, hatred, and genocide are ongoing threats and that we each have a role in combating them.
Towards these goals, we welcome your feedback about our efforts and your contributions to our Wall about issues that are consistent with the Museum's mission to advance and disseminate knowledge about the Holocaust; to preserve the memory of those who suffered; and to encourage people to reflect upon the moral and spiritual questions raised by the events of the Holocaust as well as their own responsibilities as global citizens.
The Museum strives to keep our Wall a forum that is open and welcoming to many issues and opinions. Towards that goal, we reserve the right to remove posts and comments that violate the following guidelines. Repeat offenders may be banned:
1. Stay on topic—all contributions to this page should be relevant to its stated purpose (see above).
2. Provide appropriate explanatory context for posted links, photos, and videos.
3. Be courteous. Do not use vulgarity or threaten or abuse others.
4. Challenge ideas and opinions, but refrain from attacks against groups or individuals.
5. Do not solicit or market products.
6. Repeated posts to our Wall may be treated as SPAM and deleted; repeat offenders may be banned.
7. We appreciate, and will address, honest questions about the complexity of Holocaust history. But, posts that disseminate misleading or historically inaccurate information may be deleted.
