Michael Bazyler

Michael Bazyler, professor of law at Chapman University and “1939” Club Law Scholar in Holocaust and Human Rights Studies, was quoted in a recent NPR story. Professor Bazyler discussed the late Maria Altmann, who won a landmark U.S. Supreme Court Case in 2004 that allowed her to regain precious family artworks that had been looted from her family home during the Nazi occupation of Austria.

The story is available for listening in the NPR archives.

Professor Bazyler is a research fellow at the Holocaust Education Trust in London and the holder of previous fellowships at Harvard Law School and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. He is a leading authority on the use of American and European courts to redress genocide and other historical wrongs. His book on the subject, Holocaust Justice: The Battle for Restitution in America’s Courts (New York University Press, 2003, soft cover 2005), was cited by the U.S. Supreme Court and reviewed in the Harvard Law Review, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Financial Times (London) and The Economist.
