NYC Glimpse

We were in NYC last week for a quick trip, mainly to attend a special event at the United Nations.

Cory worked on a recent Holocaust documentary, "The Last Flight of Petr Ginz" and the United Nations have been doing a lot of promotion for it. They hosted a special screening in conjunction with International Holocaust Remembrance Day, January 25th, and invited him to come and speak on a panel.

Here's the trailer for the film:

But before we got to the UN, we took a few days to enjoy the city.

Natural History Museum, Nintendo World Store, Magnolia Bakery, Liberty Island.
Cory's mom came along for the fun, and we were delighted to have her there.

Then on to the United Nations!

 Looking so official. 
He did an amazing job, made me proud!

Cory also got to spend some time with this amazing man, one of the 4 surviving boys from Terezin (Nazi prison camp) and good friend of Petr Ginz.


Outside UN Headquarters, the flags down for the night.
