The men of X Troop were a secret commando unit of young Jewish refugees who were trained in counterintelligence and advanced combat to deliver decisive blows against the Nazis. Acclaimed scholar Leah Garrett, author of X Troop: The Secret Jewish Commandos of World War II, draws on extensive original research, including interviews with the last surviving members of the X Troop unit.
During this exciting virtual event, she will follow this unique band of brothers from Germany to England and back again, with stops at British internment camps, the beaches of Normandy, the battlefields of Italy and Holland, and the Terezin concentration camp—the scene of one of the most dramatic, untold rescues of the war. For the first time, X Troop tells the astonishing story of these secret shock troops and their devastating blows against the Nazis.
Join us virtually on October 14th 6:00 pm Central.
