Holocaust Remembrance Day Program
After surviving the Holocaust, Cedars-Sinai volunteer Morris Immergluck eventually moved to New York, where he helped build the elevator in the Statue of Liberty. Three years ago, Immergluck moved to Los Angeles and became a Cedars-Sinai volunteer.

On April 13, Immergluck helped commemorate the medical center's annual Holocaust Remembrance Day by serving as one of six local survivors participating in the candle lighting ceremony. Three other survivors who participated are also Cedars-Sinai volunteers -- Michael Flagg, Ruth Moll and Sally Wolf.

This year's program featured keynote speaker Deborah Lipstadt (pictured at right), Dorot professor of Modern Jewish and Holocaust Studies at Emory University. Lipstadt is the celebrated author of "History on Trial: My Day in Court with David Irving," the story of her libel trial in London against Irving, who sued her for calling him a Holocaust denier.

The 22nd annual program was chaired by Joel Geiderman, M.D., co-chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine and vice chairman of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
