The interactive lecture, led by Michael Rubell, features a panel of third-generation Holocaust survivors -- thoughtful young men and women whose grandparents experienced first-hand the trauma of the Holocaust either as victims or liberators. They will share their thoughts on how their family history impacts them and will explore their and our responsibility to remember and act in the turbulent times of the present and into the future.

The audience will be encouraged to pose questions to the panelists during the event.

About Michael Rubell

Michael Rubell is the son of Morris and Elaine Rubell and the exuberantly happy husband of Lisette and father of Jonathan.  His father of blessed memory was a Holocaust survivor, which has played a huge part in his being sensitive to the needs of those less able to speak for themselves.  When he died in 1995, Michael created Morris Rubell Holocaust Remembrance Journeys to further the work of his father in teaching tolerance and acceptance by personally bringing middle and high school students to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.  Since 1996, over 5,000 students and educators have participated in these Remembrance Journeys.

When he is not donating his time to the foundation, he runs his own consulting business which focuses on teamwork, leadership & management training and executive coaching. He teaches programs in the areas of leadership, teamwork, communication, management skills, and presentation skills.  He also facilitates meetings, helping project and management teams constructively find solutions to organizational and business challenges.
