Event Recap

2020 New York Virtual Event

For the first time, we held this annual gathering virtually—but it was no less inspiring. It included celebrities reading victims’ last words and an insightful conversation between Benjamin Ferencz, the last surviving Nuremberg prosecutor, and Naomi Kikoler, director of the Museum’s Simon-­Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide. When asked how people can help continue his life’s work fighting for peace and justice, Ferencz said “never give up.”

During the 11th annual event, hosted by Diane von Furstenberg, we also paid tribute to our honorees from the last decade:

  • 2010: Howard Ganek
  • 2011: Oliver Stanton
  • 2012: The Halpern Family, The Pantirer, Pines, and Schwartz Families
  • 2013: Jill and Peter Kraus
  • 2014: Eva Cooper, the Honorable Michael B. Mukasey
  • 2015: Todd Fisher, Howard Unger
  • 2016: Alan Lazowski
  • 2017: Elisa Spungen Bildner and Robert Bildner, Sheila Johnson Robbins*
  • 2018: Howard M. Lorber
  • 2019: Gary Jacob, Stacey Saiontz
