The grandson of four Holocaust survivors, David has made it his life purpose to leverage the power of collective memory to inspire collective action towards a world of “Never Again.” After graduating from Duke University with a degree in Public Policy, David joined Accenture Strategy, where he advised Fortune 500 clients and the firm’s flagship corporate philanthropy program, Accenture Corporate Citizenship ($60M/Yr portfolio). In January 2017, unnerved by the rise of fear and hate at home and abroad, David left Accenture to pursue his global vision for Together We Remember full-time. David also serves on the External Advisory Committee (EAC) of the USC Shoah Foundation, the Institute for Visual History and Education.
Kiel Majewski, Executive Consultant
The grandson of a US Army liberator, Kiel was the first executive director of CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Terre Haute, Indiana. For ten years, he shared an office with Auschwitz survivor Eva Kor, who was recently featured in a viral video that has been viewed over 189 million times. Kiel started working for CANDLES shortly after the museum was firebombed and totally destroyed by a hate-fueled arsonist in 2003. Through the power of survivor testimony and social media, he helped to grow this small museum in rural Indiana into a thriving international education center. Kiel has helped lead tours of genocide memorials in Europe and Africa, and has mentored youth and adult grassroots human rights activists.
