Aung San Suu Kyi was originally given the award for standing up to the country's military dictatorship and serving 15 years of house arrest, The Hill reported.
According to the museum, the award is the museum's highest honor and given to "internationally prominent individuals whose actions have advanced the Museum's vision of a world where people confront hatred, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity". Prevented by Myanmarese law from running for political office, she holds the title of state counselor and foreign minister. ". It is true that Aung San Suu Kyi lacks real power over the military, which retains a quarter of seats in parliament and runs other institutions".
The Holocaust Museum is dedicated to the victims of National Socialism. It is with great regret that we are now rescinding that award. They speak Rohingya or Ruaingga, and they have been denied citizenship in Myanmar since 1982.
The refugees are fleeing a military operation in which security forces and Buddhist mobs have killed men, women and children, looted homes and torched Rohingya villages.

Bloomfield, the director of the museum, explains that the museum had been closely monitoring the ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar by government authorities, with over 700,000 fleeing the mass-rape and murders of a military crackdown to neighboring Bangladesh since August 2017.
The US has described Myanmar's denials of ethnic cleansing as "preposterous" and called on the United Nations security council to pressure Aung San Suu Kyi "to acknowledge these horrific acts that are taking place in her country".

Rohingya refugees head for a refugee camp after crossing the Naf River that separates Myanmar and Bangladesh near Palong Khali.
Bloomfield acknowledged: "We understand the hard situation you must face in confronting decades of military misrule and violence in your country and that institution's still powerful constitutional role".
"The military's orchestration of the crimes against Rohingya and the severity of the atrocities in recent months demand that you use your moral authority to address this situation", the museum wrote in its letter.
