Marek Halter, the noted French Jewish writer, painter and political activist, will speak Monday evening, March 28, at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles,
He will deliver the annual Interfaith Lecture on “Monotheism: The Four Thousand Year Fight Against Idols” at 6:30 p.m. at the University Hall’s McIntosh Room, under the auspices of the LMU Jewish Studies Program.
A few days earlier, Halter was the guest of honor at an intimate luncheon at the home of French Consul General David Martinon, co-hosted by the consulate’s cultural attaché, Jean-Christophe Harel and press attaché Stephanie Rainin.
Guests included representatives of the Shoah Foundation, American Jewish Committee, Anti-Defamation League, Jewish Journal, and the French daily Le Monde.
Halter was born in 1936 in Warsaw and with his parents escaped after the Nazi invasion from the Warsaw ghetto and spent the war years in the Soviet Union.
An impressive figure, with a leonine head, Halter is the author of some 10 novels, many on biblical themes and figures, as well as a study on Christian rescuers during the Holocaust. His latest work is “The Jewish Odyssey: An Illustrated History.”
