Author and former Newsweek editor Andrew Nagorski speaks with B'nai B'rith CEO Dan Mariaschin about his riveting new book, “Saving Freud: The Rescuers Who Brought Him to Freedom."

"Saving Freud" tells the harrowing, real story of how an eclectic group of well-connected friends came together to rescue Sigmund Freud – the father of psychotherapy – and his family, and engineered his dramatic escape to London following the German annexation of Austria in 1938. Nagorski also explores the final chapter of Freud's life – which remains an unsettling story that defies analysis.
