President Joseph Biden will deliver the keynote address at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Days of Remembrance at the United States Capitol on Tuesday, May 7, at 11 a.m. ET.  House Speaker Johnson and Minority Leader Jeffries will also participate. The combined presence of these elected officials is an important statement.

Days of Remembrance was first held in 1979 and then later mandated by Congress as the nation’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust. This year’s Days of Remembrance will be observed from Sunday, May 5, through Sunday, May 12.

Every president since the Museum opened in 1993 has delivered the keynote address at this annual commemoration. The event will be live streamed at this link.
