Temple Bet Yam to host award-winning author

Logo St Augustine Record

In remembrance of Yom Hashoah, (the Holocaust) Temple Bet Yam will host award-winning author and journalist Andrew Nagorski for a discussion of his lastest book “The Nazi Hunters.”

The program will be at 2 p.m. April 23 at Temple Bet Yam, 2055 Wildwood Drive.

Nagorski, who now lives in St. Augustine, was a Newsweek bureau chief in a succession of European capitals.

His most recent books, “Hitlerland: American Eyewitnesses to the Nazi Rise to Power” and “The Nazi Hunters” have received rave reviews.

His discussion of “The Nazi Hunters” will be based on archival research as well as numerous interviews with a Nuremberg prosecutor, Simon Wiesenthal, the Klarsfelds, Mossad agents who apprehended Adolf Eichmann, the deputy prosecutor at Eichmann’s trial and many others.

“The Nazi Hunters” is available online, and hard copies will be available for a book signing at the presentation.

The program is free and open to the public, though reservations are required.

For reservations, call 819-1875 or email templebetyam.org.
