Canadian Society for Yad Vashem for its exceptional work in
commemorative initiatives and in educating future generations about the
horrors of the Holocaust."

across the globe to remember the six million men, women and children

never repeat themselves by educating future generations about the evils
that stem from anti-Semitism and other hatreds."
