Hon. Nancy H. Rubin, Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights, gave the keynote address. A standing room-only crowd listened to a pre-ceremony conversation with childhood friends and Holocaust survivors Alice Gerstel Weit and Simon Gronowski, who reunited for the first time in 76 years.
