What you do matters: 2015 washington, dc tribute dinner
The Museum’s 2015 National Tribute Dinner, attended by over 900 supporters, honored Judge Thomas Buergenthal and Benjamin Ferencz with the Elie Wiesel Award for dedicating their lives to building the post-Holocaust legal framework that seeks to hold genocide perpetrators accountable for their acts. Featured speaker, FBI Director James Comey, spoke passionately about the significance of the Holocaust and the Museum's ongoing partnership with the FBI. The more than $1.7 million raised from this event for the Museum's campaign, Never Again: What You Do Matters will go to support programs like this and many others. The Museum is incredibly grateful for the leadership of chairs Marcy and Neil Cohen and the entire Washington Host Committee. View photos from this event; view video from this event.
