Despite a tense giving environment, the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust reported a 50 percent increase in attendance at their second annual fundraising dinner, which took place at The Beverly Hills Hotel on Nov. 8.

Apropos of the event, “Schindler’s List” producer Branko Lustig was honored for his longtime commitment to Holocaust education and commemoration. Also honored was Austrian historian Andreas Maislinger, who created the Austrian Holocaust Memorial Service, an alternative to the country’s mandatory military service that promotes Holocaust education and awareness through internships at Holocaust memorials in 23 countries.

Dartmouth College senior Samuel A. Rauch received the 2009 Student of the Year Award after interning at LAMOTH, where he translated German language source material from their archives.

The Shalhevet High School Choir provided musical entertainment and an emotional interlude when they invited survivors to the stage to sing “Jerusalem of Gold.”
