Dietrich Von Hildebrand Legacy Project

"The Dietrich von Hildebrand Legacy Project was founded by John Henry Crosby in 2004 to promote the thought and spirit of Dietrich von Hildebrand by preserving his memory and disseminating his writings, especially in the English-speaking world. "

I just saw Dr. Alice Von Hildebrand on EWTN Live and she mentioned this new project. The website describes the work in more detail and also lists a very impressive Advisory Council that includes Cardinal Ratzinger, Rocco Buttiglione, Otto von Hapsburg, Michael Novak, and Rhonda Chervin. One of the goals is to translate into English Von Hildebrand's writings - including his sixty anti-Nazi tracts that made him a marked man and caused him to flee to America. You can read about Dietrich Von Hildebrand and his work here. This is a very worthy project to say the least.
