NMHIM Statement on Israel and Hamas

October 2023

The New Mexico Holocaust & Intolerance Museum strongly condemns the brutal, senseless killing of innocent Israelis and those taken hostage by Hamas terrorists on October 7. Our hearts break for the families of Israelis and Palestinian civilians who have lost lives in this horrific war and are in desperate need of the basic necessities of life.

The museum stands in support of all innocent Israeli and Palestinian civilians, those in Ukraine, Sudan, Yemen, Syria, and other parts of the world where innocent people are suffering the effects of war, authoritarian rule, and the tyranny of terrorists. The museum supports their right to peace and security.

The museum is dedicated to combating hate, intolerance, and indifference by using personal stories of the Holocaust, other genocides, and discrimination to educate and inspire upstanders. We stand in solidarity with innocent citizens everywhere.
