Chandler site picked for tolerance museum.

A local Jewish organization has picked Chandler over other Valley cities as the site for the nation's fifth Tolerance & Holocaust Museum. Museum will be hosting their first ever Fundraiser, Saturday, January 8th, 7pm at the Chandler Center for the Arts. Tickets for the event will be $25/ea and will go to support Museum’s continuing efforts.
The evening will consist of the Arizona premiere of the multipleaward winning documentary Rene & I. Rene and I tells the story of twins, Rene and Irene who survived experiments by Josef Mengele after being sent to Auschwitz at age 6. This is the true tale of how these twins survived the war, were separated and then amazingly were later reunited, and came to create a life and thrive in America. Rene and I is an uplifting story about overcoming adversity against all odds and is a tribute to tolerance, endurance of the human spirit, and the true triumph of good over evil.

The evening will also feature a speech by a Holocaust survivor.
