May 5, 2022 – NY Mayor Eric Adams together with Rabbi Marvin Hier, Founder and CEO of the Center and Rabbi Abraham Cooper, the Center’s Associate Dean and Director of Global Social Action, toured the Simon Wiesenthal Center Museum of Tolerance’s dynamic, new Social Lab, an innovative 10,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art instillation which confronts major domestic and international issues facing society today.
The Mayor also viewed the Museum’s latest permanent, interactive exhibit which examines the horrors inflicted on the world as a result of the Wannsee Conference.
Mayor Adams added his name to the many world leaders, prime ministers, and presidents to view The Hitler Letter, written over one hundred years ago by Adolf Hitler, on September 16, 1919, six years before Mein Kampf.
The letter, on display in the Museum of Tolerance, outlines Adolph Hitler’s plan calling for, “The uncompromising removal of the Jews altogether. It is a shocking reminder that anti-Semitism and hate are flourishing once again, only 70 years after the Holocaust.
“Thank you for taking the time out to explain about your work which is very important. Your history. The way we see ‘never again’ is to prevent people from thinking it,” noted Adams.
