On Tuesday, January 10, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum hosted the Washington, DC, premiere of In the Land of Blood and Honey, a new film set against the backdrop of the Bosnian war, written and directed by Angelina Jolie.

The events in the former Yugoslavia coincided with the Museum's opening in April 1993. At the opening ceremony Museum Founding Chairman and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel delivered a personal plea to then-President Clinton to stop the ethnic cleansing that was occurring there.

This film will introduce many people to the events of the Bosnian war in the 1990s. We hope they are inspired to learn more about this history, to recognize that genocide remains a threat in today's world, and to join the Museum's genocide prevention efforts.

Through our exhibitions, our genocide prevention efforts, and our wide range of educational programs, the Museum works every day to ensure the lessons of the Holocaust shape our future.

Please take our pledge to prevent genocide today. Together we will create the future that Holocaust memory demands.

I pledge to learn more, educate others, and take action to help prevent genocide today.
