“A Chance to Survive:” 28th Annual Federal Inter-Agency Holocaust Remembrance Program

The 28th Annual Federal Inter-Agency Holocaust Remembrance Program, “A Chance to Survive,” will be held virtually on Wednesday, April 7, 2021, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET as part of the 2021 Holocaust Days of Remembrance. You may view the livestream here.

The program will feature the stories of two Holocaust survivors, Alfred Münzer of the Washington, DC area, and Max Glauben of Dallas, Texas. Each will give a unique account of their chance to survive and the lessons we can learn from their experiences. Phil Rosenfelt, Deputy General Counsel for Program Service, U.S. Department of Education, and Esther Safran Foer, author of I Want You to Know We’re Still Here: A Post-Holocaust Memoir, will moderate the program. 

Congress established the Days of Remembrance as the nation’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust. This program, which began at the U.S. Department of Education in 1994, takes place every year with the purpose of educating federal employees, students, and the public about the Holocaust. Additional information and resources about the Holocaust, including the oral history recordings of both keynote speakers, are available through the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is honored to host this year’s event virtually. We join together to remember the six million Jews, as well as the many others, who were murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators during the Holocaust.
