Susan Zuccotti will discuss her latest book Père Marie-Benoît and Jewish Rescue at NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli Marimo in New York City September 24 at 6 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Centro Primo Levi. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to make a reservation to attend this free presentation.
In Père Marie-Benoît and Jewish Rescue, Zuccotti narrates the life and work of a courageous French Capuchin priest who risked everything to hide Jews in France and Italy during the Holocaust. To tell this remarkable tale, in addition to her research in French and Italian archives, Zuccotti personally interviewed Père Marie-Benoît, his family, Jewish rescuers with whom he worked, and survivors who owed their lives to his network.
