This year's ceremony will feature a presentation, “My Journey as a Child Holocaust Survivor,” by Harold Kasimow, the George Drake Emeritus Professor of Religious Studies at Grinnell College.

He has written and edited several books, most recently Interreligious Dialogue: Religious Thinkers Engage with Recent Papal Initiatives (2018). Harold was born in 1937; his parents, two sisters and he spent 19 months and five days hiding from the Nazis near Vilnius (Lithuania) in a hole dug in the floor of a cattle barn, covered over with boards and straw.
