Behind Enemy Lines by Marthe Cohn
5:00 p.m. Reception | 6:00 p.m. Presentation | 7:00 p.m. Book Signing
To commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day, join us to hear an incredible story of courage, faith and espionage with ninety-six-year-old French Jewish Spy Marthe Cohn. When the Nazis crossed the border and invaded France in 1940, Marthe and her family fled. Always a fighter, she joined the French Army as part of the intelligence service and set out on missions behind enemy lines. Posing as a young German nurse desperate to find her fiancé, Marthe successfully retrieved critical information about German troop movements and reported it to the Allies. Cohn will sign copies of her book following the presentation.
