Taking a Stand Lecture Series: Eric Lichtblau | Return to the Reich: A Holocaust Refugee’s Secret Mission to Defeat the Nazis
Sunday, October 27, 6:00 PM
Pulitzer Prize–winning New York Times investigative reporter Eric Lichtblau presents on his new book Return to the Reich: A Holocaust Refugee’s Secret Mission to Defeat the Nazis, the remarkable story of Fred Mayer, a German-born Jew who escaped Nazi Germany only to return as an American commando on a secret mission behind enemy lines.
Based on years of research and interviews with Mayer himself, whom the author was able to meet only months before his death at the age of ninety-four, Return to the Reich is an eye-opening, unforgettable narrative of World War II heroism.
