Dear Members of the Campus Community,

World War II French Jewish spy Marthe Cohn will be speaking on campus Feb. 13. Ms. Cohn, the author of “Behind Enemy Lines: The True Story of a French Jewish Spy in Nazi Germany,” will share her story of joining the French intelligence service, posing as a nurse, crossing enemy lines and relaying information about the Nazis back to the French.

For her daring efforts, the French government honored Ms. Cohn with both the Croix de Guerre, which was awarded to people who distinguished themselves in the Allied fight against the Axis forces, and the Medaille militaire, which is given for bravery in action against an enemy force.

At 98, Ms. Cohn is a living legend. Her story is terrifying and inspiring, and I hope you can join us to hear her share it in person.

The event will be held in Krannert Center’s Great Hall at 6 p.m. on Feb. 13. It is co-sponsored by the Chabad Jewish Center and is free and open to the public.

I hope you can join us.


Robert J. Jones
