Sites of Conscience speaker tapped for JHM

The Jewish History Museum/Holocaust History Center will hold its annual meeting on Thursday, April 26 at 7 p.m., as it formally accepts induction into the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience.

Guest speakers will be Dina Bailey, director of methodology and practice at the coalition, and Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild.

“Since opening the Holocaust History Center in 2016, the Jewish History Museum has been committed to serving as a site of conscience in our community. For the museum, this means connecting past struggles with the human rights of today. As a member of an international coalition of organizations committed to advancing human rights, we will connect our work with the work of member agencies in 55 nations and undoubtedly be illuminated, humbled and inspired by our partners in the field,” says Bryan Davis, JHM executive director.

The museum will honor the recipients of its Dr. Barry A. Friedman Volunteer of the Year Award, Linda Tumarkin and Lynda Rogoff. The evening will include presentation of the 2018-19 board slate and a dessert reception.
