Valley Chabad and Eternal Flame Present ‘Behind Enemy Lines’ Lecture

October 19 at Pascack Valley High School: Valley Chabad will be sponsoring a captivating evening with a presentation by Holocaust survivor Mrs. Marthe Cohn of her heroic experiences as a spy during World War II. Living in France on the German border, she enlisted in the French Army and was placed in the French Intelligence Service. Marthe was fluent in German and was sent behind enemy lines into Germany to report on Nazi troop movements. Posing as a young blond German nurse looking for her fictional missing fiancé, Marthe was able to mingle with German troops and obtain information about their military strength and movements. This information was then relayed to Allied commanders for battle planning. At age 80, Marthe was awarded France’s highest military honor, the Medaille Militaire, for her outstanding military service.

The program will be introduced by Dovid Efune, editor-in-chief of the Algemeiner newspaper, who will discuss world anti-Semitism and the BDS movement on college campuses

For a memorable evening, please join us for her incredible story of faith, courage and espionage.
