Award-winning correspondent and war reporter for the Washington Post and the Daily Telegraph, Jack Fairweather is coming to Pittsburgh to speak about his new book, “The Volunteer: The True Story of the Resistance Hero who Infiltrated Auschwitz.” Taking place in Nazi-occupied Poland, it follows the story of Polish underground operative Witold Pilecki who volunteers for a secret mission to infiltrate Auschwitz. Completely erased from the historical record by Poland’s Communist government, Pilecki remains almost unknown to the world — until now.
Jack’s book was recently published and copies will be available for purchase.
Save the Date: September 22 at Rodef Shalom.
This Classrooms Without Borders event is planned in conjunction with Classic Lines Books and the Kosciuszko Foundation. More information and registration coming soon.
