An Innocent Bystander: The Killing of Leon Klinghoffer
Book Talk with Author Julie Salamon. On October 3, 1985, Leon Klinghoffer, a disabled Jewish New Yorker, and his wife boarded the Achille Lauro to celebrate their 36th wedding anniversary with a Mediterranean cruise. Four days later, four Palestinian fedayeen hijacked the Italian luxury liner and took the passengers and crew hostage. Leon Klinghoffer was shot in the head, his body and wheelchair thrown overboard. His murder became a flashpoint in the intractable struggle between Israelis and Arabs and gave Americans a horrifying preview of what it means when terrorism hits home.

AJHS is home to the Klinghoffer Family Papers. The collection contains papers of the Klinghoffer family related primarily to the 1985 hijacking of the Achille Lauro cruise ship, Leon Klinghoffers murder, and the aftermath of these events.
