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

Hosted By: USC Shoah Foundation

Join USC Shoah Foundation Finci-Viterbi Executive Director Stephen Smith as he moderates a panel discussion around the issues of reparation, memory, justice and equity.

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.

What can America learn from the example of Germany?

This event, part of USC’s Stronger Than Hate Initiative, is presented in partnership with Wilshire Boulevard Temple, and is co-organized by USC Dornsife Casden Institute for the Study of Jewish Role in American Life and USC Shoah Foundation.

This event is at 4 PM PT and 7 PM ET.
