30th Anniversary South Florida Dinner
More than 600 guests attended the Museum’s 30th Anniversary South Florida Dinner on January 24th in Boca Raton, raising nearly $1.5 million. The event was led by Honorary Chair and Museum Legacy of Light Guardian Marilyn Wallach. Julie Peyton, national patron and regional ambassador for the Museum, received the Museum’s National Leadership Award in recognition of her indelible mark in educating and building national and global understanding of the atrocities of the Holocaust and other genocides. CNN Senior Legal Analyst Elie Honig moderated a discussion at the dinner entitled Fleeing Atrocities: Witness Perspectives. The panel featured two witnesses of genocide and mass atrocities nearly 80 years apart: Holocaust survivor Louise Lawrence-Israëls and Rohingya genocide in Burma witness Wai Wai Nu, along with Naomi Kikoler, director of the Museum's Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide.
