He trained at Camp Ritchie as an intelligence officer in the army, and returned to Europe to interrogate prisoners of war (POWs) in preparation for the trials at Nuremberg. 

Dr. Mehnaz M. Afridi, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies and the Director of Holocaust, Genocide, and Interfaith Education Center at Manhattan College, will also participate in the discussion.
