Humans of the Holocaust: Conversation with Menachem Kaiser

Thursday, 2:30pm-3:30pm PDT


Prerequisite Note: Due to the virtual setting of this class, you must have computer capability, including internet access, in order to participate. A camera is also optimal but not required.


In his recent memoir, Menachem Kaiser sets out to renew his Holocaust-survivor grandfather's former battle to reclaim the family's apartment building in Sosnowiec, Poland.

Plunder chronicles how he found himself on an unexpected adventure that went far beyond the personal quest. This daring interrogation of inheritance raises profound questions about seizing your legacy, and whether reclaimed property can repair rifts among the living.

Join him in conversation with Prof. Michael Berenbaum.
