Our 32nd Anniversary Dinner on October 30th was a resounding success, bringing together our friends and supporters for an inspirational and enjoyable evening. Funds raised from the dinner support our numerous public tours, programs and exhibitions, as well as the outreach we provide to schools, universities and community groups. We appreciate the generosity of our community, and your continued partnership in our important mission to memorialize the tragedy and combat hatred, prejudice and indifference.

A special thank you to honorees Rozanne & U.S. District Judge Bernard A. Friedman, speaker Dr. Deborah Lipstadt, Honorary Chairs Karolyn & Arie Leibovitz, Dinner Chairs Jackie & Larry Kraft, Dinner Advisors Barbara & Irvin Kappy and Richard K. Stoler, the members of our Dinner Committee and our many dinner volunteers.

In the below video, created for the Holocaust Memorial Center’s 32nd Anniversary Dinner, Lori Talsky Zekelman discusses the passage of the Michigan law mandating Holocaust and genocide education that she spearheaded, and Michigan teachers explain why it is so important to students. The video also is a touching memorial to Elie Wiesel, who passed away earlier this year.
