What Was Once Lost: The Fight for Holocaust Restitution

April 3 @ 7:00 pm

As the Nazis attacked and occupied countries across Europe, they looted cultural and religious items and pilfered property from Jewish communities. By the end of the war, the Reich had carried out one of the greatest mass thefts in human history. Much of this stolen property was trapped behind the Iron Curtain, out of reach to those who sought to restore it to Jewish survivors and their heirs. The World Jewish Restitution Organization (WJRO) was founded in 1992 to pursue restitution of these materials, as many former communist countries have yet to return this property to its original owners or their heirs, or to offer compensation for these losses.

Mark Weitzman, chief operating officer of the WJRO, joins us to discuss the ongoing fight for Holocaust restitution in Central and Eastern Europe and his work to make this happen through advocacy and negotiation. For more information, contact: cfangman@dhhrm.org.
