Time for Videos!

While we may not be able to meet in person during this time of COVID19, there are still many ways we can keep up our interest in the history of World War II.

Dr. Schonberg, the Club's President has been in contact with the author Richard Breitman who  sent him the link to the taped C-span lecture Breitman gave at the FDR Library in October, 2019. Schonberg  encourages us to learn about a man most of us have never heard of before, and who in not such a small way, impacted on US policy and WWII. I attended this lecture and found it an eye opener about Raymond Geist, an American hero.
Since we are all practicing social distancing, we might be able to enjoy again some of the speaker videos that the New Jersey World War II Book Club has posted over the years.  One in particular was most memorable, that of Ursula Pawel, author and Holocaust survivor, as she toured the United
States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
