During Days of Remembrance, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum bestows its highest honor, the Elie Wiesel Award, to individuals who have taken action to promote human dignity.
This year's recipient, Representative John Lewis, is a Civil Rights leader who repeatedly risked his life to stand up to hatred. His moral courage reminds us that individual actions matter and we cannot afford to be silent in the face of injustice.
