Join the Museum community in honoring the 2017 Elie Wiesel Award recipient, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, for her singular contributions in support of Holocaust memory and education. German Ambassador Peter Wittig will speak on behalf of Chancellor Merkel, who will accept the award by video. 

The featured speaker is Doris Kearns Goodwin, a presidential historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author. An assistant to Lyndon Johnson during his last year as president, Goodwin later helped him prepare his memoirs. Her works include The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism; Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln; and No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt: The Home Front in World War II.
