Anne Nelson - Suzanne's Children: A Daring Rescue in Nazi Paris

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Nelson presents the moving story of Suzanne Spaak, a member of the Paris Resistance. Born to a wealthy Belgian family and married to a playwright and arts patron, Spaak used her status to recruit church groups and well-connected Parisians to “kidnap” Jewish children slated for deportation to Auschwitz. The group saved hundreds of these young people, and Spaak herself hid many in her own home. Honored in Israel as one of the Righteous Among Nations, Spaak was captured by the Gestapo in 1944 and executed just thirteen days before the liberation of Paris. Nelson is a prize-winning writer and playwright who teaches at the Columbia School of International Affairs, who previously authored Red Orchestra, an account of Germany’s courageous anti-Nazi network.
