From the Paley Center: A conversation for International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

“Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”
— Elie Wiesel

On November 1, 20005, the United Nations General Assembly designated January 27—the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau—as International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

On this annual day of commemoration, the UN urges every member state to honor the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and millions of other victims of Nazism and to develop educational programs to help prevent future genocides.

Watch on YouTube at 7 p.m. Eastern, January 27, 2022.
(The presentation will be recorded for later viewing.)

In honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day one of my favorite organizations, the Paley Center for Media, will convene leaders from education, public policy, journalism, and culture to examine the media’s vital role to enable conversations that confront the horrors of the Holocaust.

How are educators and cultural leaders encouraging people of all ages, faiths, and backgrounds to reckon with the legacy of this tragic event, and to learn from it? What role does media play in raising awareness of the dangers of antisemitism, especially among young people, to help ensure the Holocaust is never forgotten, and not repeated?

The program is made possible by generous support from Shari Redstone, and Aryeh and Elana Bourkoff.

Participants are: Michael Bornstein, Holocaust Survivor Senator Christopher J. Dodd, (D-CT, 1981-2011); The Dodd Center for Human Rights Doron Krakow, President, and CEO, JCC Association of North America Maria Zalewska, Executive Director, Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Foundation Moderator: Jim Axelrod, Chief Investigative & Senior National Correspondent, CBS News.

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
