Kader attends Holocaust memorial in Washington, D.C.

ASU law professor David Kader recently attended the 20th Anniversary National Tribute at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. More than 2,300 people, including 875 Holocaust survivors and 140 World War II veterans, attended.

The event marked the museum’s 20th anniversary and featured historians, writers, artists, philosophers and other special guest speakers, including former President Bill Clinton.

Kader said he was invited because of his long involvement with Holocaust remembrance and related pro bono work in assisting survivors in pursuing legal compensation.

Kader is one of the founders of the local Phoenix Holocaust Survivors’ Association and served as president for nine years. In 2007, he participated in the Curt C. and Elise Silberman Seminar for Faculty, winning a grant to work at the Museum on the paper, “Impact & Legacy of the Holocaust on the Law.” The program has resulted in Kader delivering a number of talks over the years, most recently on Arizona Supreme Court Law Day in 2010, and again at the Arizona Bar Convention this coming June.
