Two Opportunities in the NYC area:
Pave the Way Foundation, an international organization whose mission is to initiate historical projects and remove obstacles between religions, is sponsoring a presentation in New York on two dates in April with the Diocese of Assisi, Italy, to recognize the brave actions taken by the clergy and citizens of Assisi in protecting Jewish refugees during the Holocaust.
Hear the stories, view the exhibit. Open to the public, this presentation utilizes panels from the Museo della Memoria Assisi, the Museum of Memory, and will feature a roundtable discussion with:
- Professor Johan Ickx, archivist for the Historical Archives of the Vatican Secretary of State,
- Elizabeth Bettina, author of ‘It Happened in Italy,’
- Archbishop of Assisi, Domenico Sorrentino,
- Museum’s founder and curator, Marina Rosati,
- Monsignor Anthony Figueiredo, responsible for English-speaking affairs,
- Mayor of Assisi, Stefania Proietti.
The events are planned for two dates and two different locations.
