Hope for Humanity Dinner. Check back for details regarding the 2014 Dinner.
The 2013 Hope for Humanity Award annual dinner will honor local Dallas-Fort Worth Holocaust Survivors—several of whom still regularly speak at the Dallas Holocaust Museum to bear witness to the Holocaust. Other survivors visit schools and churches to tell their stories. Their lives continue to serve as beacons for hope.
The Museum will also honor Father Patrick Desbois, President of the Yahad-In Unum Association, with the Museum’s 2013 Hope for Humanity Award.
Fr. Desbois, who has devoted his life to confronting anti-Semitism and furthering Catholic-Jewish understanding, will speak at the dinner on October 30 at the Dallas Fairmont Hotel, 1717 North Akard Street. The Hope for Humanity reception starts at 6 p.m. Dinner begins at 7 p.m.
Fr. Desbois has dedicated his life to preserving the memory of Ukraine’s former Jewish community and to advance understanding of the crimes committed during the Holocaust. To date, his organization has identified 800 of the estimated 2,000 sites of mass burial.
Make plans now to attend the dinner and meet local Holocaust Survivors and Fr. Desbois.
