Eric Lichtblau - Return to the Reich: A Holocaust Refugee's Secret Mission to Defeat the Nazis

Upcoming Event
Sunday, October 20, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

A two-time Pulitzer-winning investigative journalist for The New York Times, Lichtblau follows The Germans Next Door, his history of German war criminals in the U.S., with the riveting story of a German émigré who performed heroic service for the U.S. as a spy. Fred Mayer, one of the last Jews to escape Hitler’s regime, was recruited by the OSS after Pearl Harbor and sent to Austria as the leader of Operation Greenup, designed to deter Hitler’s last stand. He posed as both a Nazi officer and a French POW, spent months hidden in an attic, and not only survived capture and torture but persuaded a Nazi regional commander to surrender.
