October 10, 2023

The Simon Wiesenthal Center mourns the passing of former chairman and CEO of Viacom Entertainment Group, Jonathan Dolgen, who passed away today at the age of 78.

In 1997, Dolgen received the Center’s highest honor, the Humanitarian Award for his years of friendship and support of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

“What Jonathan Dolgen stood for and what he taught his children, is that a person’s obligation is to help rebuild the cracks, to fight against the injustices, to protect the underprivileged, and to build a better world for ‘the generations of mankind.’ He was an inspiration to many and will be sorely missed,” said Rabbi Marvin Hier, SWC Founder and CEO.

For further information, please email Michele Alkin, Director of Global Communications at malkin@wiesenthal.com or Shawn Rodgers at srodgers@wiesenthal.com, join the Center on Facebook, or follow @simonwiesenthal for news updates sent directly to your Twitter feed.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center is an international Jewish human rights organization. It holds consultative status at the United Nations, UNESCO, the OSCE, the Council of Europe, the OAS, and the Latin American Parliament (PARLATINO).
