A bipartisan slate of members of Congress is organizing a private, after-hours tour of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., next week.

An invitation to the tour — which will be followed by a debrief and discussion — was sent out to members of Congress and signed by six representatives: Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), Ted Deutch (D-FL), Elaine Luria (D-VA), Susie Lee (D-NV), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) and Lee Zeldin (R-NY). 

“Now, more than ever, it is important to rededicate ourselves to the work of remembering the Holocaust and learning the lessons of the attempt to eliminate European Jewry,” the letter read. 

The private tour, intended only for members of Congress, is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, July 16.
