Online Book & Author: “The Ratline”
Join us for a live virtual discussion with Philippe Sands, author of The Ratline. Based on Sands’ successful BBC Radio Podcast, The Ratline delves into the life and mysterious death of Otto von Wächter – a devoted Nazi turned man on the run.
Sands and his colleagues uncovered key details about Wächter’s life and family history by studying an archive of letters, diaries, and other materials that were produced over the course of the tumultuous years between 1929 and 1949. Register for this intimate conversation to learn more about a “tale of Nazi lives, mass murder, love, Cold War espionage, a mysterious death in the Vatican, and the Nazi escape route to Perón’s Argentina.”
