What does reparation and justice look like for surviving generations of families with brutal histories who experienced immeasurable losses?
Margaret Burnham, university distinguished professor of law who directs Northeastern’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,” 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?
