2016 HMMSA Benefit

The Jewish Federation hosted the first ever benefit for the Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio on Wednesday May 18th at the Pearl Stable. Honorary event chairs were Phyllis & Dr. Shelly Braverman and Pat and Tom Frost. It was a special evening that highlighted the great work our Holocaust Memorial Museum does in educating our community and the next generation of the dangers of hatred, prejudice and apathy. Guest speaker Patrick Father Desbois shared his life’s work in uncovering and marking mass unmarked graves of Jews and Roma from WWII. The event was a great success in raising the funds that will allow the museum to expand its hours of operation, as well as raising awareness of our museum in San Antonio and the important role it plays in fostering speaking out for justice.
