The American Society for Yad Vashem, in partnership with The Jewish Life Foundation, hosted this inspirational evening and brought together 350 new and returning supporters of Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center. For many years, the Hollywood community has been an essential partner in spreading the mission of Holocaust education and remembrance. Inspiration for this year’s Gala came from The Hollywood Reporter’s story, “Hollywood’s Last Survivors”. Honored at the Gala were The Hollywood Reporter and staff, Branko Lustig, Oscar-winning producer of Schindler’s List, Meyer Gottlieb, former president of Samuel Goldwyn Films and David Wiener, A survivor of Auschwitz. These three Holocaust survivors, as well as the others who were able to join us at the gala, truly enhanced the evening. Thanks to our generous supporters and new friends in the community, this was our most successful event yet in Los Angeles. We surpassed our fundraising goal and have set new records for the future.
