"Woman in gold"
Join us on 21.3.2021 at 8:00 pm to a lecture about the remarkable true story of one woman’s journey to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family. Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann, starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt’s famous painting Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer. Together with her young lawyer Randy Schoenberg, she embarks upon a major battle which takes them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the U.S. Supreme Court, and forces her to confront difficult truths about the past along the way.
Lecturer: E. Randol Shoenberg, former President of Los Angeles Holocaust Museum of the Holocaust, board member of JewishGen and Co-Founder, Coordinator and Moderator for the JewishGen Austria-Czech Special Interest Group.
