On Monday, October 16 , 2023,  NCJW, Greater New Orleans Section will come together to celebrate our newest Hannah Solomon honoree, Anne S Levy.
 Anne so aptly fits this description. She is a Holocaust survivor who came to the United States in 1949, as a 14 year old girl. As an adult, she began to speak publicly about the horrors she had witnessed. She visited classrooms and talked to children about her experiences, and how hate can happen anywhere. She was especially motivated to speak out when David Duke, a neo-Nazi and grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, was running for senator and then governor of Louisiana. She confronted him directly, and had a lot to do with his defeat in both races.
