Panel with Michel Jeannoutot and Anne Grynberg, moderated by Emmanuelle Saada
Panelists discuss French policies put into place by the French Commission for the Compensation of Victims of Spoliation (Commission pour l’Indemnisation des Victimes de Spoliations, CIVS), created in September 1999 to compensate Jewish families and individuals despoiled in France as a result of the anti-Semitic legislation adopted during World War II. They also explore debates around whether this model of "reparation" can be applied to other categories of victims including descendants of slaves.
Michel Jeannoutot is a Magistrate, Judge on the Cour de Cassation, and President of the CIVS
Anne Grynberg is Professor of Contemporary History at INALCO, University of Paris I-Sorbonne, and Scientific Director of the History Committee of the CIVS.
