Hannah Rosenthal, the State Department envoy on anti-Semitism, was recognized for her work by the Haiti Jewish Refugee Legacy Project.

Rosenthal received the project’s Tikkun Olam Award for her efforts to combat hate and intolerance.

The award, which Rosenthal received on Aug. 3, is given to individuals or organizations that have dedicated themselves to Holocaust or World War II research.

The Haiti Jewish Refugee Legacy Project was founded in January 2010 to document and commemorate Haiti’s role in providing refuge to 100 to 300 Jews fleeing Nazi persecution during World War II. The project’s central database collects and memorializes personal reflections and artifacts of Holocaust survivors who sought refuge in Haiti.
