The Claims Conference 65 Years Later: A “Small Measure of Justice” for Holocaust Survivors

The Claims Conference (The Conference on Jewish Material Claims against Germany) was established in 1952 to provide some measure of restitution to Jewish victims of Nazi persecution. Marilyn Sinclair, Canadian representative to the Claims Conference, will discuss how this unprecedented pivotal moment has provided more than $70 billion to benefit 800,000 Holocaust victims. She will also address questions such as: Who does the Claims Conference help? What is Germany’s continued commitment? What is Canada’s experience with the Claims Conference and how are funds allocated?

Time: 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Cost: Free
