About Our Programs for Military

The Museum’s programs and resources for military personnel encourage reflection and discussion on leadership, decision making, and genocide prevention. Through examination of the Holocaust and in particular the German military, military members gain fresh insight into their own professional and individual responsibilities and explore ways in which they can work to prevent mass atrocities today. 

Topics include:

  • Critical factors that influence decision making and command responsibility in complex environments

  • Changing cultural and professional contexts influencing military operations

  • The dynamics of genocide and mass atrocities
