Empower - The Campaign for Northeastern University


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’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 is a hybrid event; Northeastern students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend in person but registration is required due to space limitations.  A livestream link is also available.
