LEAH’s 2009 Bridge Builder Award
Presented to
Asa-Lena and Per-Olof Lööf


League For Educational Awareness of the Holocaust (LEAH) presented its 2009 Bridge Builder award to philanthropists Asa-Lena and Per-Olof Lööf at a gala at the Marriott Boca Raton on January 18. This is the first time a married couple has received the annual award. The gala was chaired by Patti Carpenter. Honorary Chairs were Charlotte and Morris Robinson. The presentation of the award was made by 2008 Bridge Builder honoree,
Yvonne S. Boice.

The League For Educational Awareness of the Holocaust (LEAH) is a nonsectarian, not-for-profit organization committed solely to teaching children that Intolerance is Intolerable.

Speaking at the gala, Robert Alrod, LEAH President said, The Lööfs are tireless ambassadors for the promotion of diversity and tolerance. Mrs. Lööf is an educator and President of the Swedish Women’s Educational Association International. Mr. Lööf is an economist by training and serves as CEO of Kemet Corporation and Honorary Consul of the Kingdom of Sweden in Florida.

The horrors of the past must not be repeated. Educating the world about genocide and intolerance is too important to be taken lightly. In times of economic difficulty this work becomes even more important. We know all too well, how economic turmoil was used to spur the most horrific regime of mankind.  This must never happen again. This is why we will always be strong supporters of LEAH, said Per-Olof Lööf accepting the award.

Proceeds from the Bridge Builder gala will support LEAH’s educational programs for children aimed at eliminating prejudice and hatred using lessons learned from the Holocaust and other genocides. LEAH has funded over $1.5 million for tolerance projects and programs for youth.
