ADL New Mexico will honor our past and present leaders during a Gala Centennial Celebration on Sunday, November, 10th, 4:00 p.m., at the Hotel Andaluz in Albuquerque. Keynote speaker will be T. Zane Reeves, author of the fascinating book Shoes Along the Danube. Violin music will be provided by concertmaster Kryzsztof Zimowski and a delicious buffet of Hungarian appetizers and specially selected wines donated by Gaucho Imports will be part of the celebration. R & B singer Cathryn McGill will perform a special version of John Lennon’s Imagine. Tickets are $100 per person for our “First Century” and $200 per person “Into Our Second Century”, which includes priority seating and a signed copy of “Shoes Along the Danube”.
Shoes Along the Danube is based on the true story of two families, one Jewish, one Gentile beginning in pre-World War II Budapest as increasing fascism and anti-Semitism led Hungary to become an ally of Germany. The story builds through the siege of Budapest, daring anti-Nazi operations, covert activities during the Russian occupation of Hungary, communism, exile, separation, and amazingly, an enduring legacy in New Mexico. The book’s title refers to the Hungarian memorial of sixty pairs of iron shoes cast in the styles of the 40’s that stand in remembrance of Hungarian victims of the Holocaust.
ADL leaders to be honored are : Ed Atler, M.D., Jeffrey Baker, David Buchholtz, Jeff Diamond, Pauline Eisenstadt, Jeri Berger Hertzman, Anita Miller, Ned Miller (of blessed memory), Richard Nodel, John Rubel, Steven Sanders, Ronald Segel, Michael Sutin and Peter Weinreb.
Complimentary valet parking will be available. Dress is business attire.
The ADL New Mexico Centennial is sponsored by The Baker Law Firm, The Jeff Diamond Law Firm, Sutin Thayer & Browne and Lee Blaugrund.
