The International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation presents “Partners of Hope”, a concert to commemorate the Holocaust and recognize those who displayed extraordinary courage to save Jews from genocide. The concert will take place on February 5, 2007 at Carnegie Hall’s Isaac Stern Auditorium.
The program follows shortly after the United Nations-designated Holocaust Remembrance Day and will feature prominent musicians, actors and civic leaders, joining together in a moving tribute.
The theme of the evening will be the rescue of the entire Jewish population of Bulgaria during the Holocaust. Over 50,000 Jews were saved thanks to the extraordinary and widespread response from a people who refused to capitulate to Nazi genocide.
Among the performers will be Bulgarian-born soprano, Anna Veleva. Ms. Veleva is one of the most acclaimed singers from Eastern Europe and a rising star in the world of opera. The Westfield Symphony Orchestra, conducted by its music director, David Wroe, will play compositions of special significance in commemoration of the Holocaust.
With branches in New York, Buenos Aires and Jerusalem, the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation is a public non-profit non-governmental organization. Its mission is to develop educational programs and public awareness campaigns based on the values of solidarity and civic courage, ethical cornerstones of the Saviors of the Holocaust. More than 200 heads of State and Nobel Prize Laureates are among our members. Raoul Wallenberg is the Swedish diplomat missing since January 1945 after saving the lives of tens of thousands of Jews and other persecuted by the Nazis.
