Join us as acclaimed author and speaker Robert Watson, Ph.D., tells the lesser known story of a German luxury liner that during the Second World War was transformed from a barrack transport, to the star of a “Titanic” propaganda film, and finally bombed while housing thousands of prisoners in the final days before liberation. Unearthing
forgotten documents, Watson’s riveting account of this tragic story is becoming known as one of the last major tragedies of the Holocaust.

His book on the topic, The Nazi Titanic, will be available for sale following the talk.
