RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Holocaust Museum's board is replacing co-founder, president and executive director Jay M. Ipson.

Media outlets report that Ipson's last day with the museum will be June 30. Assistant executive director Simon Sibelman will replace Ipson.

Ipson says the board decided to oust him because of disagreements on some matters.

Ipson, Mark Fetter and Al Rosenbaum founded the museum in Richmond in 1997.
