Topic: Evil, Indifference, and Human Dignity
Presented by Michael Hausfeld, Chairman of Hausfeld LLP
Michael Hausfeld, aged 72, is a lawyer feared by executives from America to Germany. Cultivating an extravagant look with colorful bow ties and round wire-rimmed glasses, he likes to point to a quote by Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel that he has framed in his office in Washington, DC: “Indifference to evil is worse than evil itself.” So he has for decades made it his business to fight for justice on behalf of the powerless. He has won $5.14 billion for victims of Nazi-era slave labor and $5 billion for Native Alaskans whose homeland was poisoned by the Exxon Valdez oil spill.
Coffee and tea will be provided. Participants are welcome to bring a dairy, parve, or meatless lunch.
