RABBI MARVIN HIER:
I'd like to thank the Academy, the Board of Trustees of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the patrons and benefactors of Moriah Films, our resident film division. This is for the survivors of the Holocaust who walked away from the ashes, rebuilt their lives, and helped create the state of Israel. God bless them.
Thank you, Morgan Freeman. Thank you, Mark Jonathan Harris. Thank you, Martin Landau, Ed Asner, Nina Siemaszko, Helen Slater, Miriam Margolyes. My wonderful Pam, Josh and Emily. Thank you.
