Monuments Men: Search for Nazi Plunder
Beth El Temple's Men's Club co-hosts this event at the Mandell JCC with the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Hartford:
Baltimore Journalist Susan Fisher Sullam will tell the fascinating story of her discovery of her father's role in "Task Force Fisher". As a member of General Dwight Eisenhower's staff during World War II, Lt. Commander Joel Fisher kept records detailing one of the greatest treasure hunts in history. His documents, found by his daughter after his death, chronicled how Fisher led a task force during the closing month of the war that located and recovered billions of dollars' worth of gold, silver, currency and artwork looted by the Nazis.
Cost: $10 in advance, $12 at the door. (Click here to register with the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Hartford.)
