Carolina alumnus Stuart Eizenstat will discuss “The Future of the Jews: How Global Forces are Impacting the Jewish People, Israel and its Relationship with the United States” on Nov. 18 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The free lecture, hosted by the Carolina Center for Jewish Studies, will be at 7:30 p.m. in the UNC William and Ida Friday Center for Continuing Education auditorium.
Eizenstat ’64, who has held numerous senior U.S. government positions in three presidential administrations, will share his thoughts regarding the future of the Jewish people in light of the major geopolitical, economic and security challenges facing the United States, Israel and the world.
Much of the belated justice for victims of the Holocaust was the result of Eizenstat’s leadership in the Clinton administration. He successfully negotiated major agreements with European countries, covering restitution of property, payment for slave and forced laborers, and recovery of looted art and bank accounts. He is the author of “Imperfect Justice: Looted Assets, Slave Labor, and the Unfinished Business of World War II” and “The Future of the Jews.”
