Donna Frankoff Memorial Lecture
Linda Hirshman’s dual biography ties together the careers of the first and second women judges to serve on the Supreme Court.

Hirshman is an attorney, author, and respected cultural historian.

In 2015, 19-year-old Jordana Lebowitz attended the war criminal trial in Germany of Oskar Greoning, a “bookkeeper” at Auschwitz who was charged for complying in the death of more than 300,000 Jews.
Lebowitz is the granddaughter of Holocaust survivors, and her story of witnessing this historical trial is told through author and Holocaust education activist Kathy Kacer. Since the trial, Lebowitz’s mission has been to pass her history on to the next generation, and advocating for Holocaust remembrance.
