Holocaust Museum Statement on Texas Hostage Situation

“Jews were targeted simply for being Jewish”

The continued targeting of synagogues in the United States is cause for alarm. From Pittsburgh, to Poway, to now Colleyville, these attacks have one constant throughout: Jews were targeted simply for being Jewish. History is a powerful reminder of the dangers of unchecked antisemitism. These events remind us that all segments of society must work to prevent it from flourishing. We hope that Holocaust education will inspire people to confront antisemitism and all forms of hate.

Sara J. Bloomfield, Museum Director
