The Unlikely Nazi Hunters: Meet Serge & Beate Klarsfeld
The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center - 66th Street, Between Fifth and Madison Avenues 10 East 66th Street New York, NY 10065
Together, they tracked down Klaus Barbie -- the "Butcher of Lyon" -- and orchestrated his extradition to France, helped clinch the convictions of former Nazis and collaborators and documented all 76,000 Jews deported from France. Standing up to those trying to bury the past, the Klarsfelds were arrested for trying to kidnap a former German Gestapo chief and escaped two attempts on their lives. Harassment, beatings and deportations became part of their existence. For the first time, this unlikely heroic couple -- he, a Romanian-French Jew forced to hide in a cupboard when his father was arrested and sent to Auschwitz; she, a non-Jew who grew up in wartime Berlin surrounded by Nazis -- are telling their dramatic story in a new dual memoir, Hunting the Truth. New York's Streicker Center is privileged to welcome this brave and committed couple on the very day their book is published for an exclusive New York City conversation with Sara J. Bloomfield, Director of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Tickets include a copy of the book.
