Plunder, Reparations and Restorative Justice

What does reparation and justice look like for surviving generations of families with brutal histories who experienced immeasurable losses? University Distinguished Professor of Law, Margaret Burnham, who directs Northeastern Law’s renowned Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project, will be in conversation with Menachem Kaiser, author of Plunder: A Memoir of Family Property and Nazi Treasure, a memoir about his family’s efforts to recover property left behind in Poland after the Holocaust. Are there lessons for America to be learned from the German reparations that Holocaust survivors received? This session will be in collaboration with the Holocaust and Genocide Awareness Committee (HGAC). Cayle White, a Northeastern parent, brought Menachem Kaiser to the attention of the HGAC.
