"I can't help but think back to the people who built this industry, Streisand said. "Ironically, they were also escaping their own troubles. Men like Shuel Gelfish, who changed his name to Samuel Goldwyn, Eliezar Meir who became Louis B. Mayer and the four Wonskolazer brothers who became Warner Brothers. They were all fleeing the prejudice they faced in eastern Europe, simply because of their religion. And they were dreamers too, like all of us here tonight. And now I dream of a world where such prejudice was a thing of the past."
