Behind Enemy Lines: The True Story of a Jewish Spy in Nazi Germany – Rancho Cordova
The Chabad Jewish Community Center in Folsom will host Marthe Cohn who will be sharing her story as a Jewish spy in Nazi Germany. The talk is titled “Behind Enemy Lines: The True Story of a Jewish Spy in Nazi Germany.”
Holocaust survivor Cohn was born in Metz, France in 1920. She was a young Jewish woman living just across the German border in France when Hitler rose to power. As the Nazi occupation escalated, Marthe’s sister was sent to Auschwitz while her family fled to the South of France. Always a fighter, she joined the intelligence service of the First French. Utilizing her perfect German accent and Aryan looks, Marthe posed as a German nurse desperately trying to obtain word of a fictional fiance. She traveled the countryside and approached troops sympathetic to her “plight” thereby obtaining vital information about troop movements for the Allied commanders.
