US Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Other Dignitaries Join to Express Determination To Advance Curriculum For Holocaust and Other Genocide Education in New York State

Jericho, NY— Voices For Truth And Humanity recently announced its 2nd Annual Remembrance Awards Dinner on its website (https://www.voices4truthandhumanity.org), and interest was immediate.  This is largely due to the stellar lineup of prominent lawmakers, spokespeople, and humanitarian advocates who are slated to join their voices at the event to discuss both compelling reasons, and practical strategies, for implementing Holocaust and Other Genocide education in public schools today.

Distinguished panelists and presenters will include:

  • Marion Wiesel, Wife of the late Elie Wiesel, Co-Founder of the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity
  • Elisha Wiesel, Son of the late Elie Wiesel, CEO of Israeli fintech startup The Floor
  • Honorable Ambassador Asaf Zamir, Consul General of Israel in New York
  • Martin Bloch, Holocaust Survivor, member of WWII Bielski Partisans Resistance
  • Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Sponsor of Never Again Education Act to expand Holocaust education in the U.S.
  • NYS Senator Anna Kaplan, Sponsor of NYS Senate bill to study Holocaust curriculum in NY
  • NYS Assemblyman Steve Stern, Sponsor of Suffolk County anti-BDS legislation, Co-Sponsor of NYS Assembly bill to study Holocaust curriculum in NY
  • Prime Minister Salih Hudaya, East Turkistan Government-in-Exile, Champion for the Uyghur people
  • Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, Executive Vice President of NY Board of Rabbis
  • Rita Cosby, TV news correspondent, Director of LIU Global Service Institute
The Dinner, which will also include cocktail hour, raffle prizes, and a silent auction fundraiser, will feature an informative panel discussion about the state of proposed Holocaust and Other Genocides education legislation at the state and federal level. The need for such education will be highlighted in presentations by Prime Minister Salid Hudaya, representing the persecuted Uyghur people, and Israeli Consul Asaf Zamir, addressing the rising trend of anti-Semitism both in the US and abroad.

In addition to its stellar lineup of renowned speakers, this event marks one of the first times that many other distinguished organizations are assembling together to affect specific educational change, including: Anne Frank House, Holocaust Museum and Tolerance Center, UJA-Federation, AJC, Jewish Community Relations Council, Simon Wiesenthal Center, StandWithUs, New Jersey Department of Holocaust Education, New York Board of Rabbis, and others. 

Voices For Truth and Humanity (V4TH), an all-volunteer group, believes that this interest among like-minded organizations is peaking now because the need is becoming more and more apparent to all. Truly, it is time to “Educate To Stop Hate!” Accordingly, this 2nd Annual Remembrance Awards Dinner is being positioned not only as an informative report of present initiatives, but also as the launch event for further collaborations to be announced that evening. 

The goal is simple: to advance the cause of Holocaust and Other Genocide Education in new and vital ways, to impact the next generation and the world.
