Hillary Clinton Presents Theodor Herzl Award to Elie and Marion Wiesel

A radiant, Hillary Clinton in a midnight blue silk gown, bounded up the stage at the Waldorf-Astoria’s Starlight Roof to present the World Jewish Congress’ Theodor Herzl Award to Marion and Elie Wiesel at the Congress’ November 19 Award Dinner.

“When I was First Lady, Elie spoke at the White House as part of a lecture series leading up to the New Year 2000 — the eve of the Millennium… He reflected on a century marred by wars, strife and division. Despite the horrific unspeakable suffering he endured and witnessed, he remained optimistic. Indifference, he told us that night… is more dangerous than anger and hatred… They both played pivotal role in bringing the Shoah to public consciousness.”
