Bronfman’s talk is being presented by the Sun Valley Center for the Arts. It is part of the Center’s two-part, multidisciplinary project "Mirroring History: The Gaze of Hate in the 20th Century."

Bronfman is former chief executive officer of Distillers Corporation—Seagrams Ltd.¾ and past chairman of The Seagram Company Ltd. He has been a leader in the international effort to restore property to Jewish people that was confiscated by the Nazis during WWII. In addition to his leadership roles as president of the World Jewish Restitution Organization and president of the World Jewish Congress, he has served as chairman of the Foundation for Jewish Campus Life.

In 1999, Bronfman was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor available to a United States citizen.

The second segment of the Center’s program on hate and intolerance is titled "In the Shadow of the Holocaust." It includes the works of artists, writers, musicians and choreographers, all of whom responded to the Holocaust.

The lecture is free of charge, but seating is limited. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Following the lecture, the Wood River Jewish Community will sponsor a reception.


The Idaho Mountain Express is distributed free to residents and guests throughout the Sun Valley, Idaho resort area community. Subscribers to the Idaho Mountain Express will read these stories and others in this week's issue.
