2018 International Holocaust Remembrance Day Webinar: Marthe Cohn
On the eve of International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2018, French Jewish Spy Marthe Cohn shared her amazing story of courage and persistence.

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.
