Event Description

An Unforgettable Evening With 98 Year Old Marthe Cohn! Marthe Cohn was born in France in 1920. As the Nazi occupation escalated, her sister was sent to Auschwitz while her family fled to the south of France. At the age of 24, she joined the intelligence service of the French Army. Utilizing her perfect German accent and Aryan looks, Martha posed as a German nurse desperately trying to attain 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. For her service, at the age of 80, she was awarded the Croix de Guerre, France's highest military honor. Marthe is 98 years old and lives with her husband in California. She travels internationally sharing her remarkable story and has no plans of slowing down.
