6 p.m. Reception
7 p.m. Dinner
Join us to learn more about the Museum's urgent work and to hear from Iranian Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari, who will be the recipient of the 2020 Elie Wiesel Award at the National Tribute Dinner in April. Bahari is being recognized with the Museum's highest honor for exhibiting exceptional courage in bringing the truth of the Holocaust to the Middle East and being a powerful voice against antisemitism.
Bahari is the author of Then They Came for Me: A Family’s Story of Love, Captivity, and Survival, the story of his imprisonment by the Iranian regime, which was chronicled in the feature film Rosewater by Jon Stewart. In 2018, he released the documentary 82 Names, produced in cooperation with the Museum, which tells the story of Mansour Omari, a human rights activist who survived imprisonment and torture by the Assad regime in Syria. He is also the founder of IranWire, a forum reaching millions of Iranians each month with objective news and accurate, relevant information about the Holocaust.
The dinner will also include a special commemoration, recognizing International Holocaust Remembrance Day coinciding with the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
