Jewish-American Hall of Fame Chronology

  • 2018:The Mel Wacks Judaica Art Medal Award was presented to Otakar Dušek at FIDEM (Fédération Internationale de la Médaille d'Art) conference in Ottawa on June 2. Otakar’s medal tells the story of how a concentration camp for women, located near the German municipality of Helmbrechts, was hastily evacuated on April 13, 1945, as US troops were approaching. Almost 1,200 pitiful women prisoners from this camp were thus force-marched towards Germany-occupied Czechoslovakia in a Death March (Todesmarsch). Read more here.

  • 2018: On July 15th, Hedy Lamarr was inducted into the Jewish-American Hall of Fame in a ceremony at the American Jewish University, attended by over 200 people. Her son, Anthony Loder, received the Hedy Lamarr medal and talked about his mother.
