From Hate to Hope®

Matt & Tim  

Join us every first Sunday of the month to hear the story that began right here at the Museum of Tolerance, now subject of 2014 Oscar-nominated documentary short, Facing Fear.

From Hate to Hope® is a remarkable true story of the reconciliation of a perpetrator and victim of a hate crime. Featuring Matthew Boger and Tim Zaal, this presentation examines the roots of prejudice and discrimination and the ability to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Using a Question and Answer session, Matthew and Tim engage the audience in a discussion of redemption and the power of forgiveness.

Meet Matthew Boger and Tim Zaal at the Museum of Tolerance:

Matthew and Tim present their extraordinary story at 3:00 p.m. on the first Sunday of each month plus additional sessions through out the month.  Check the calendar for additional presentations. This one-hour lecture is included in museum admission.
