Michael P. Ross was appointed by President Obama as a member of the United States Holocaust Memorial Council. Mike is a longtime advocate for human rights. “For me, it’s personal because my dad is a survivor. I lost cousins. I lost my grandparents in the Holocaust. For me, this [appointment] is a tremendous honor.”
Established by Congress in the 1980s, the council, which meets twice each year, is the governing board of trustees of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Its 63 members include 55 appointed by the president. Each presidential appointee serves a five-year term.
