"The inspiration for this year's gala came straight from the pages of The Hollywood Reporter," said Ron Meier, American Society for Yad Vashem Executive Director, "Their groundbreaking story, 'The Last Survivors' appeared in December, 2015 and chronicled the stories of the 11 Holocaust survivors alive today who had each forged a prominent place in the entertainment industry. Two of those featured, Meyer Gottlieb and Branko Lustig, are among our honorees this year. It is through their stories and those of all Holocaust survivors that the history and significance of the Holocaust is imparted to our future generations." "Thanks to the ongoing support of the Hollywood community, this year's event will be another great success," stated Phil Blazer, Founder and CEO of JLTV.
