This July, Taube Philanthropies will honor the author of a banned book on Jewish life that U.S. diplomats helped her smuggle out of communist Poland and a theater director, who shook off neo-Nazi attacks to revive Jewish life in Lublin, with its 2014 Irena Sendler Memorial Award.

In May 2007, the Republic of Poland appointed businessman and philanthropist Tad Taube, one of the Bay Area's distinguished civic leaders, to represent Poland as an Honorary Consul in northern California. Mr. Taube was born in Krakow, Poland, in 1931 and immigrated to the United States in the summer of 1939, just weeks before the outbreak of World War II. He has dedicated his life to efforts strengthening the civic and cultural life in both the United States and Poland and to building a close connection between the two.
