Behind Enemy Lines

January 9 , 7:00 pm

From: <barb@chabadsh.com>

title: Behind Enemy Lines
description: Spend an unforgettable evening with Martha Cohn as she tells her story of being a spy in Nazi Germany.

Marthe was born in France, in 1920. As the Nazi occupation escalated, her sister was sent to Auschwitz while her family fled to the south of France. At the age of 24, she joined the Intelligence Service of the French Army. Utilizing her perfect German accent and Aryan looks, Martha posed as a German nurse desperately trying to attain word of a fictional fiance. She traveled the countryside and approached troops sympathetic to her plight thereby obtaining vital information about troop movements for the Allied commanders. For her service, at the age of 80, she was awarded the Croix de Guerre, France’s highest military honor. Marthe is now 96 years old and travels internationally sharing her remarkable story and has no plans of slowing down. Please register before December 25th. www.chabadsh.com or call 412-344-2424 or email rabbi@chabadsh.com.
