Dallas Holocaust Museum Hope for Humanity Dinner

Dallas Holocaust Museum
2013 Hope for Humanity Dinner
Fairmont Hotel
Reception 6 p.m.
Dinner 7 p.m.

Father Patrick Desbois, President of the Yahad-In Unum Association, will be the keynote speaker.   Father Desbois has devoted his life to confronting anti-Semitism and furthering Catholic-Jewish understanding. He is focused on 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.

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.

Individual tickets are $350 (limited availability). Table prices begin at $3,500. For further information, please contact Development Director Kim Overs at 214-741-7500.
