The Holocaust Litigations: Defining Guilt, Extracting Reparations – with William Lerach
Jan 17 @ 5:00 pm
Eliminationist antisemitism may have been the main reason behind the Nazis’ lethal assault on European Jews, but there was also a profit motive: for some, the Holocaust was an opportunity for economic exploitation. This is the story of a small band of American lawyers who, 50 years after the fact, exposed the widespread complicity of major Swiss banks and multi-national German corporations in the Holocaust. Among the lawyers involved in this long-overdue attempt atWiedergutmachung was William Lerach, a leading securities lawyer in the US. In this lecture, Lerach discusses the litigations that recovered stolen property worth several billion dollars. A member of the United States Holocaust Memorial Council, Lerach is the recipient of the prestigious Legacy Laureate award from the University of Pittsburgh. Patrick Patterson, a professor of history at UC San Diego, will provide an introduction and comments.
