Virtual Ann Katz Festival: Leah Garrett - Nov 1, 2021


About This Event

You might think this book is a page-turning novel, but it is thoroughly researched and excellently written history.\ \ June 1942. The shadow of the Third Reich has fallen across the European continent. In desperation, Winston Churchill forms an unusual plan: a new commando unit made up of Jewish refugees who have escaped to Britain.\ \ The resulting volunteers are a motley crew of intellectuals, artists and athletes, most from Germany and Austria who became elite shock troops, dealing devastating blows against the Nazis. This is their astonishing story.\ \ Please support Leah Garrett by purchasing a copy of her book wherever books are sold. Garrett will be interviewed by Kathryn W. Lerch, historian and educator.\ \ Price is per household. This event is virtual; Zoom link will be made available to registrants two days, two hours and 10 minutes before the program (this means registration will end 15 minutes before the program begins).\ \ This is a Jewish Book Council program.
