Survivor's Talk Marks Holocaust Remembrance Day

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Internationally recognized soldier, spy, author, and holocaust survivor Marthe Cohn will discuss her book “Behind Enemy Lines,” an account of her experience in Nazi Germany during World War II, as part of the Shoah Commemoration or Holocaust Remembrance Day at MCC on Tuesday, April 30.

Free and open to the public, her presentation begins at 12:30 p.m. in Overbrook Theater. A reception and second short presentation will take place between 3:30-5:30 p.m. in Stevenson Center Room 1100.

Born in 1920 into a Jewish family in Metz, France, Cohn bears witness to a period of time when a democratic republic fell prey to the anti-Semitism of Nazism. Cohn will recount how she travelled as a nurse fluent in German into enemy territory and collected intelligence for the French Army.
