Cadets Visit the US Holocaust Memorial Museum
Thanks to the generosity of the Beitler Family Foundation, 70 cadets from West Point traveled to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. with the Department of History and the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies faculty, MAJ Eric V. Muirhead, CPT (P) Kate Alfin, Professor David Frey, and Professor Michael Geheran.
Cadets received a special tour of the museum, took part in discussion and reflection, and listened to the inspiring story of Holocaust survivor and museum volunteer, Susan Warsinger. By learning from the terrible events of the past, the Army officers of the future will better understand how to prevent atrocities like the Holocaust from happening again. Wisdom Through History.
