4to. Unpaginated (192pp). Original photographic wraps showing Sakharov and Bonner embracing each other. "The Simon Wiesenthal Center is North America's largest institution devoted to the study of the Holocaust and contemporary anti-Semitism with more than 245,000 member families. Located on the campus of Yeshiva University of Los Angeles, it is the only institution bearing the name of famed Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal. The Center bestows its coveted Humanitarian Award each year upon outstanding individuals who have devoted their lives to the pursuit of peace, justice and human rights. Past recipients of the Humanitarian Award have included Israel's national heroine, the late Hannah Senesh, Raoul Wallenberg (in absentia), and at a Paris ceremony, French President François Mitterrand. This year, in honoring Soviet dissident and Nobel Laureate, Dr. Andrei Sakharov and his wife Yelena Bonner, the Wiesenthal Center is not only recognizing their courage, their commitment to and sacrifice for the great ideals of world peace, freedom and human rights, but hopes to increase international awareness and concern so as to reinforce efforts to secure their freedom." In seven parts: I. Profiles of Courage and Sacrifice. II. "Spokesman for the Conscience of Mankind." (Nobel Committee Oslo, Norway 1975). III. Testimonials: In Admiration and Respect. IV. The International Sakharov Hearings. V. Exiled - But Not Silenced. VI. They Are Not Forgotten. VII. The Struggle of Soviet Jewry.
