Holocaust survivors, Lipstadt, Emanuel at U.S. Holocaust Museum Chicago lunch

| No Comments



WHAT: The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's 2011 Risa K. Lambert Chicago Luncheon will feature Deborah Lipstadt, a scholar, author and the world's leading authority on Holocaust denial. Lipstadt's most recent book, The Eichmann Trial, was written while she was the Judith and Burton P. Resnick Invitational Scholar at the Museum's Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies. This year marks the 50th anniversary of this landmark trial.
The program will also honor Chicago residents Diane and Hal Gershowitz, who for more than 20 years have been actively involved with the Museum. Diane was one of the Luncheon's original founders. The event has grown from a meeting in her living room into the largest fundraiser for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
The Risa K. Lambert Chicago Luncheon attracts more than 2,500 Chicagoans each year. The event provides crucial support to the work of the nation's memorial to the Holocaust as it brings Holocaust education to Chicago and communities across the country.
