"I’m deeply honored to participate as the presenting underwriter for the Auschwitz Exhibition at the Reagan Library.  My support is in honor of my children, and in memory of my parents who escaped Nazi Germany in 1939. In a world where antisemitism is running rampant—in fact, many believe the Holocaust did not occur—this international event could not be more timely.  It is my hope that this museum experience will help those who are deniers to learn the truth; as well as inspire young people to never forget.  As a culture, let us stand up to any persecution based on race, faith, ethnicity, gender or demographic—and ensure this and other tragedies will never happen again.”

—Ambassador Gordon D. Sondland
