Episode 013 - Conversation with Professor Norman Poser.mp3

Brooklyn Law School's own Professor Norman Poser talks about his recent book, "Escape: A Jewish Scandinavian Family in the Second World War." The book chronicles a little-known episode of the Holocaust, the fate of the Norwegian Jews and the heroic efforts of the Danish Consul-General in Oslo to save the Danish Jews living in Norway, including members of Professor Poser's family. The book also relates how other family members of Professor Poser escaped from Nazi-occupied Denmark to Sweden.

Professor Poser will be giving a talk about these events at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 31, at the Jewish Community Center, 334 Amsterdam Ave. at 76th Street. The program is co-sponsored by the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation and the Consul General of Denmark in New York.
