The Board needs to promote education for policymakers in the processes of genocide and mass atrocities.
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 21, 2012
The Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation, a New York-based nonprofit for genocide prevention, will be available for comment Monday, April 23, on a new U.S. initiative to prevent mass atrocities.
Monday morning, President Obama will visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, to give a talk marking the Holocaust Days of Remembrance.
The President will also discuss how the United States is honoring the pledge of “Never Again” by launching an Atrocities Prevention Board to prevent and respond to mass atrocities.
Tibi Galis, executive director of the Auschwitz Institute, which brings government policymakers to the Holocaust site of Auschwitz in Poland for education and training in genocide prevention, will be available to comment on this occasion for the media.
The Auschwitz Institute is the U.S. government's chief nonprofit partner in building capacity for prevention of genocide.
Says Galis: "The Atrocities Prevention Board needs to promote education for policymakers in the processes of genocide and mass atrocities, as well as training in policy approaches to prevention, so the government will have the capacity to support the Board in its mission as the President defined it in PSD-10."
