2022 Southeast Virtual Event
On April 4, 2022, Museum supporters from across the Southeast region recommitted to ensuring the lessons of the Holocaust continue to inspire individuals and leaders worldwide to confront hatred, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity.
Keynote speaker Michael Berenbaum, who played a lead role in the Museum’s creation, shed light on a lesser-known chapter of this history, the “Holocaust by bullets,” the murder of as many as two million Jews in eastern Europe, including at least 1.5 million in Ukraine.
Craig and Barbara Weiner received the Museum’s Southeast Leadership Award for their dedication to the Museum’s mission and their tireless efforts to expand Holocaust education. And honorary chairs Samuel and Bilha Ron shared Samuel’s story about fighting to stay alive during the Holocaust, helping Jewish refugees after the war, and educating young people today.
