Debbie Cenziper will be appearing at the Smithsonian Associates program, Thursday, December 5, 2019, details are available on our web site, and the title of her presentation is Delayed Justice: The Hunt for Hitler’s Hidden Soldiers in America.
Drawing on her new book, Debbie Cenziper unfolds the harrowing wartime journeys of two Jewish orphans from occupied Poland who outran the “Trawniki Men” and settled in the United States, only to learn that some of their one-time captors had as well.
Debbie Cenziper traces how a tenacious team of prosecutors and historians sought to hold the “Trawniki Men” accountable for their crimes decades after the war’s end, unraveling the details behind the most lethal killing operation in WWII, and battled to the present day to remove them from American soil.
That, of course, is our guest today, Debbie Cenziper, reading from her new book, Citizen 865: The Hunt for Hitler’s Hidden Soldiers in America.
