Event description
Author W. Jack Romberg joins us to discuss his book A Doorway to Heroism: A decorated German-Jewish Soldier who became an American Hero.

About this event

Imagine a German Jew who was a decorated German soldier in World War I, a resister in Cologne at the start of Hitler’s reign of terror, and a Silver Star decorated U.S. Army soldier. Three heroic actions, at three different times, in three different places. This is the story of Richard Stern, whose photograph of his protest hangs in multiple German museums, showing a rare Jewish protest in Nazi Germany.
