Reckoning with Reparations: What the United States Could Learn from Germany

Sunday, November 14, 2021 at 4:00pm to 6:00pm

This is a past event.
Virtual Event

As part of the USC Stronger than Hate initiative, the USC Shoah Foundation, the USC Casden Institute, and Wilshire Boulevard Temple are partnering to bring this event to USC. Germany's role in the Holocaust has forced it to address material claims since the
immediate aftermath of WWII. Despite a long history with reparations, some Germans
hold ambivalence or even pride in the acts they participated in during WWII.
The recent documentary film by acclaimed filmmaker Luke Holland, Final Account,
lays bare the diversity of perspectives on Germany's past and opens opportunities
for discussion around the concept of reparations and whether and how monetary
compensation in the aftermath of mass violence can change attitudes and behaviors
in the present.
