While filming a documentary in Israel, the prize-winning journalist Bill Moyers was struck by the words attributed to the Baal Shem Tov and inscribed at the entrance to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum—“Remembrance is the secret to redemption.” As democratic institutions around the world reel from the eroding forces of inequality and intolerance, Moyers will reflect on the role of history and memory in preserving democracy and democratic institutions.

The lecture will be the first of a series given by distinguished speakers reflecting on history and the public good initiated and sponsored by Dr. Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel and Ambassador Carl Spielvogel.
