International Education Week

September 19, 2016 - September 24, 2016

International Students’ Council’s International Education Week: International Art and Culture is a series of events and activities taking place across WSU – Pullman campus:

Monday, Sept. 19

  • International Foods Bake Sale and Henna Tattoos – CUB from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
  • Women in Gold – CUE 203 @ 7 p.m.
    • The true story of an elderly Jewish refugee living in Los Angeles, who, together with her young lawyer, fought the government of Austria for almost a decade to reclaim Gustav Klimt’s iconic painting of her aunt, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I, the “Woman in Gold” which was stolen from her relatives by the Nazis in Vienna just before World War II.  This legal battle resulted in the U.S. Supreme Court ruling against the Republic of Austria. An intriguing and thought-provoking movie that will keep you in suspense.
