Wassmuth Center Events Page
The Celebration serves as the Center’s signature event and has a reputation as one of the most dynamic and effective fundraising and cultural events in the community. Past events featured Holocaust Survivor Gerda Weissmann Klein, John Bul Dau, Lost Boy of Sudan, and Dr. Linda Ricketts, International Rotarian and Humanitarian.
We hope to build on this tradition of tremendous success by creating another unforgettable night. We are excited to present Eva Kor as our keynote speaker and honoree this year. Eva was ten-years-old when her family was sent to the Auschwitz concentration camp. Separated from their family, Eva and her twin sister became the victims of Dr. Mengele’s medical experimentation. Her story of survival and forgiveness has been featured in both print and on screen. We are eager for Eva to share her incredible story with our community as we mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
The evening includes a BoDo”nate” drawing, silent art auction, and live “event package” auction; dinner; music; program honoring the Center’s 2015 Idaho Human Rights Educator-of-the-Year; presentation of the 2015 Anne Frank Change the World Award; and keynote.
Proceeds from this important evening guarantee our program success each year and advance our statewide mission of promoting respect for human dignity through education. Although we continue to serve the community and thousands of school children through free tours at the Anne Frank Memorial and our K-12 human rights curriculum, our work cannot stop there. As a voice for human rights, we are proud of our accomplishments and anxious to develop innovative programs for delivering human rights education to every corner of the state.
