 At the Holocaust Memorial Museum today, President Joe Biden is set to deliver a speech condemning antisemitism and aligning the tragic events of the Holocaust with the recent Hamas attacks on Israel this past October 7, the deadliest since World War II. 

As part of the museum’s annual day to remember the Holocaust, Biden will spotlight these harrowing parallels and call on Americans to stand against antisemitism in all its forms.

The president’s address comes amid rising protests nationwide on over 120 college campuses asking universities to divest their investments in Israel. Over 30,000 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces, aiming to avenge the lives of the 1,500 killed during the initial Hamas attack. 

Biden is expected to urge unity in combating hate and outline his administration’s steps, such as the National Strategy to Counter Antisemitism.
