"Behind Enemy Lines," with Marthe Cohn
Nov. 17, 2014
Location: Zadok Jewelers
Marthe Cohn was born in 1920 and grew up in French Lorraine but spoke German fluently. Like many others who experienced the Holocaust first hand, she and her family found themselves gradually isolated, then singled out for arrest and deportation. A determined young woman whose features the Nazis did not consider "Jewish," Cohn was able to acquire some nurse's training. In 1945, posing as a German nurse, she slipped into enemy territory as an intelligence agent for the French First Army. She went on numerous dangerous missions which she described in her book that she co-wrote with Wendy Holden. Cohn was a remarkable woman, who under extraordinary circumstances became a hero. At the age of 80, she was awarded France's highest military honor, the Medaille Militaire. At 94, she still loves to travel, meet with students and speak to audiences. She shared her story at this Nov. 17 Premier Membership Event hosted by Zadok Jewelers
