The sold-out celebration, with more than 400 attendees, was held on December 5 at the museum. The program honored the legacy of the Jews saved by Oskar Schindler.

American-Israeli Grammy award-winning violinist, producer, and humanitarian Miri Ben-Ari performed. More than 30 descendants of Schindler survivors and their relatives, including the Lissner-Urbach family from Cresskill, were at the dinner.
