The Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton honors the legacy of its past presidents with this premier event. This year we bring you Keynote Speaker Dr. Deborah Lipstadt to inspire our community with a global message on an intimate level.

YOU'VE SEEN THE MOVIE ~ HEAR HER STORY. Dr. Lipstadt is Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish and Holocaust Studies at Emory University in Atlanta. Her academic career spans 40 years of research and writings. Dr. Lipstadt has appeared on CNN, 60 Minutes, the Today Show, and Good Morning America, among other TV news outlets. She is a frequent contributor to a variety of newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, and the New York Times. An accomplished author, Dr. Lipstadt’s book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier, recounts the story of her libel trial in London against David Irving, who sued her for calling him a Holocaust denier. According to The Times (London) “history had its day in court, and scored a crushing victory.” The book was recently adapted into the blockbuster film Denial. Dr. Deborah Lipstadt will share with our community her personal story, and how the past impacts our Jewish Future. 

"A creative, thoughtful, and accomplished people such as the Jewish people should be known by what they have done and not by what has been done to them.” ~ Dr. Deborah Lipstadt
