The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center (HAMEC) of Philadelphia is holding its 55th annual auction and dinner. This year, we will be honoring Hal Kessler and Donald Wittenberg, as well as celebrating the legacy of HAMEC.
HAMEC is the premier provider of Holocaust education programs for young people in the Delaware Valley. In the last school year alone, HAMEC completed nearly 500 programs and reached over 43,000 students. With the passage of Pennsylvania’s new Holocaust and genocide education law and its implementation, which began this fall, those numbers are expected to increase exponentially. The museum has been dedicated to educating students about the consequences of intolerance and hate. Each year museum programs reach thousands of students through Holocaust survivor presentations, school visits and videos, as well as plays through our Anne Frank Theater Project.
Ticket prices for the annual auction and dinner: $95 per person; $175 per couple
