The Case Against IBM for its Role in the Holocaust

When: Nov. 13, 2012, 4pm - 6pm
Campus Location: Thomas & Mack Moot Court

The William S. Boyd School of Law and the Jewish Federation of Las Vegas will host New York Times best-selling author Edwin Black as he presents “The Case Against IBM for its Role in the Holocaust—What the New Documentation Shows."

The award-winning bestseller "IBM and the Holocaust", documents how IBM consciously co-planned and co-organized all six phases of the Holocaust: identification, exclusion, confiscation, ghettoization, deportation, and extermination. The newly expanded edition, which offers 32 pages of photographic and document evidence, says the 12-year alliance was micromanaged by IBM President Thomas J. Watson from New York headquarters through overseas subsidiaries in Germany, Poland, Holland, and elsewhere in Europe. Learn more at the IBM and the Holocaust website.

A reception in the Wiener-Rogers Law Library will follow the presentation.
