In 1994, the Argentine Mutual Jewish Association (AMIA) community center in Buenos Aires was bombed, killing 85 people and wounding 151 others. This is the single deadliest act of anti-Semitic terrorism in Argentinean history. Dr. Alberto Nisman, now the Argentinean Special Prosecutor on Terror, has committed much of his life to pursuing those responsible for the attack.

Dr. Nisman, who is visiting the United States for the first time in his life, will be our guest speaker, along with Asaf Shariv, Consul General of Israel; Edward O’Callaghan, former Co-Chief of the Terrorism and National Security Unit of the US Attorney Southern District; and Harlan Levy, Partner, Boise Schiller Flexner and Former Major Crimes Prosecutor at Manhattan DA Office. The event is being sponsored in part by the Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center.
