Curator’s Note, October 1, 2014

One of the projects that George Anastaplo considered among his most important was a series of conversations that he recorded with Simcha Brudno in 2000, over 50 years after the end of World War II.  Mr. Brudno at that time was a distinguished mathematician at the University of Chicago but he had lived as a young man in Lithuania at the time of the Nazi occupation and enslavement of his country. The conversations were transcribed and published in a series of 13 articles beginning in 2009 (some have been posted at this site). The entire series has now been posted and may be viewed at:

One of those conversations was recently published in:

IN MEMORIAM: PROFESSOR GEORGE ANASTAPLO
LOYOLA UNIVERSITY CHICAGO LAW JOURNAL, vol. 45, 2014
How Do You Explain Craziness? On the Germans and the Holocaust, pp. 928–980

In that same issue, some of Anastaplo’s colleagues published reflections on his work and legacy. These comments may be viewed by clicking here.

Since July 29, we have posted some additional eulogies from the June 6 Memorial Service. All of the eulogies may be viewed by clicking here.
