Celebrate Kirkpatrick Lecture Hall with a Talk by Professor Lawrence Douglas

4:00 pm - 5:00 pm Science Center, Kirkpatrick Lecture Hall (A011)

Join us to dedicate and celebrate Kirkpatrick Lecture Hall in the Science Center, named for John E. Kirkpatrick '51 and Phyllis D. Kirkpatrick. Following brief remarks in honor of the Kirkpatricks, Lawrence Douglas, the James J. Grosfeld Professor of Law, Jurisprudence and Social Thought, will deliver a lecture entitled "The Last Holocaust Trial: The Wages of History and Memory."

What role should the testimony of survivors play in trials involving crimes of mass atrocity? And what happens when there are no survivors left to testify? Professor Douglas's lecture will address these questions as they arose in the case of John (Ivan) Demjanjuk, the last high-profile trial to deal with the crimes of the Holocaust.

Reception with food and drink outside the lecture hall to follow!
