Lucille Roussin to Speak at Holocaust Era Assets Conference

The Holocaust Era Assets Conference is convening in Prague this weekend. The opening ceremony is scheduled for 6pm Friday, June 26, and the conference will run through Tuesday, June 30. LCCHP Board member Lucille A. Roussin is one of the invited speakers and will give a presentation on Jewish ceremonial objects looted during WWII and distributed to Jewish communities afterwards by Jewish Cultural Reconstruction. Many of the objects are problematic because they are identifiable to either existing Jewish communities or private families and should be restituted.
