Stuart Eizenstat has had an extraordinary career of public service serving five US presidents in top policy positions. As Special Emissary on Holocaust-Era Issues to President Clinton and again in the Obama administration, he successfully negotiated major agreements with the Swiss, German, Austrian and French, and other European countries, covering restitution of property, payment for slave and forced laborers, recovery of looted art, bank accounts, and payment of insurance policies. Amb. Eizenstat is currently Chairman of the US Holocaust Memorial Council.
His book on these events, “Imperfect Justice: Looted Assets, Slave Labor, and the Unfinished Business of World War II,” reckons with unresolved war crimes and how a measure of justice can be achieved.
