Rabbi Marvin Hier (b. 1939 in New York) is the dean and founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, its Museum of Tolerance and of Moriah, the Center's film division.
Hier's parents came from Poland; his father worked as a lamp polisher after arriving in New York in 1917. In 1977, following a visit to Holocaust sites in Europe, Rabbi Hier came to Los Angeles to create the Simon Wiesenthal Center. Under his leadership, the Center has become one of the foremost Jewish human rights agencies in the world, with a constituency of more than 400,000 families. The Center maintains offices throughout the United States, and in Canada, Europe, Israel and Argentina.
He is the recipient of two Academy Awards - in 1997, as co-producer of "The Long Way Home", which offers new insights into the critical post WWII period between 1945 and 1948 and the suffering of the tens of thousands of refugees who survived the Holocaust, and in 1981 as co-producer and co-writer for "Genocide", a documentary on the Holocaust.
