DR. PHILIP WEISS
The event and award were inspired by Dr. Philip Weiss (1922–2008). Dr. Weiss was an untiring human rights educator and author of Humanity in Doubt (2006). Over two decades, he shared his compelling personal story as a survivor of the Holocaust to tens of thousands of young people. He organized free screenings of the film Schindler’s List for thousands of students, and earned a special citation from the film’s director, Stephen Spielberg.
