Jane Jelenko Honored by US Holocaust Memorial Museum

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum honored Jane Jelenko of Los Angeles with its National Leadership Award for her contributions to preserving Holocaust history and for rallying against antisemitism, genocide and Holocaust denial on March 30 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The annual “What You Do Matters” Western Region Tribute event this year featured a special presentation that told the story of the destruction of Jewish life in Poland during the Holocaust and intertwined three individual accounts of resilience, hope and determination, including the three families who were honored with the Museum’s National Leadership Award during the program.

Through the power of Holocaust history, the Museum challenges leaders and individuals worldwide to think critically about their role in society and to confront antisemitism and other forms of hate, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity.
