The central purpose of law is to protect against the violation of human rights. In few instances has this cause been more necessary than against the uncountable human rights violations that took place during World War II. On Holocaust Remembrance Day, in the Wolf Theater at the Mizel Arts and Culture Center, the CSUSA, with the Colorado Bar Association and the University of Denver, will host a retrospective event: Nazi Looted Art: Recovering Masterpieces Stolen During the Holocaust.

Attorney and arbitrator Raymond J. Dowd will lead an overview covering art theft by the Nazi regime during WWII, and with Associate Professor and art scholar Elizabeth Campbell, examine how these acts lead to the creation of looting laws and a years-long effort to return the stolen art back to their rightful owners.

The evening will begin with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at 5:30pm, followed by the event at 6:30.
