On the occasion of the Museum’s 25th anniversary, we will bestow our highest honor, the 2018 Elie Wiesel Award, on all survivors of the Holocaust in recognition of their resilience, courage, and commitment to Holocaust memory and education. For 25 years, they have challenged us to never stop asking why.
The featured speaker is David M. Rubenstein, Co-Founder and Co-Executive Chairman of The Carlyle Group.
