Inge with former Mayor David DinkinsDoctor of Humane Letters honoris causa, 2005 from Long Island University.

Daughter of Shoah. Woman of Valor.
After enduring unthinkable hatred and oppression,
you transformed the horrific into a message of love and acceptance through your books and outreach
to youth everywhere. Out of the ashes, you
have helped restore our faith that children can
again laugh in bright sunlight.
