Event description

Description

Presented by the UC San Diego Holocaust Living History Workshop

Sponsored by William & Michelle Lerach

Please join the UC San Diego Jewish Studies Department and UC San Diego Library for a presentation with investigative reporter and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Eric Lichtblau on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 from 5:30 - 7:00 PM in the Price Center East Ballroom on the UC San Diego campus. Refreshments will be served prior to the presentation starting at 4:30 PM. This event is free and open to the public.

In his highly-acclaimed book, The Nazis Next Door, Eric Lichtblau tells the shocking and shameful story of how America became a safe haven for Hitler’s men. Lichtblau will discuss how it was possible for thousands of Nazis—from concentration camp guards to high-level officers in the Third Reich—to move to the U.S. after WWII, and quietly settle into new lives as Americans. Some of them gained entry as self-styled refugees, while others enjoyed the help and protection of the CIA, the FBI, and the military, who put them to work as spies, intelligence assets, and leading scientists and engineers. Lichtblau’s book draws from once-secret government records and interviews, telling the full story of the Nazi scientists brought to America, and the German spies and con men who followed them and lived for decades as Americans.
