An Evening of Conversation & Stories
October 8, 1985, terrorists representing the Palestinian Liberation
Organization stormed the Achille Lauro cruise ship, murdering Leon
Klinghoffer, who was vacationing with his wife and friends. His tragic
death became a rallying cry in the fight against terrorism. In the
ensuing years the story was co-opted and retold through the lens of
popular culture. Featuring Ilsa Klinghoffer, Lisa Klinghoffer, Justin Davidson (New York Magazine), Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Julia Wolfe, and filmmaker Carla Singer.
Presented by The American Jewish Historical Society and The Center for Jewish History.
