Author Nina Wolff-Feld has used primary sources including letters and photographs given to her by her father, Walter Wolff, to chronicle his story as a Holocaust survivor who survived as a refugee in hiding, managing to escape Europe to the United States before 1941. 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.
This event is open to United Nations pass holders and visitors who register in person at the Visitors' Check in Office at 801 First Avenue at 45th Street. Then proceed to pass through UN Security screening at the 46 Street entrance to the main United Nations building.
