    “Plunder” Book Talk With Menachem Kaiser And Stephanie Butnick

    March 25, 2021

    Menachem Kaiser’s new book Plunder: A Memoir of Family Property and Nazi Treasure is the story of his quest to reclaim his family’s apartment building in Poland—and of the astonishing entanglement with Nazi treasure hunters that follows.

    Kaiser’s story begins when he takes up his Holocaust survivor grandfather’s former battle to reclaim the family’s apartment building in Sosnowiec, Poland. Soon, Kaiser is on a circuitous path to encounters with the long-time residents of the building, with a Polish lawyer known as “The Killer,” and with a surprise discovery about his grandfather’s cousin that reshapes his quest.

    Join Kaiser for a conversation with Stephanie Butnick, Tablet Magazine Deputy Editor and co-host of the leading Jewish podcast Unorthodox, about Plunder and the profound questions it raises about family inheritance.
