The Jewish Federation Connecting with Community presents "The Man Who Never Forgot," with Berkshire editor and author, Ken Markel.

Join us for an exploration of his most recent book To Catch A Nazi.  This is the story of one man's personal and lifelong pursuit of a war criminal who somehow eluded the hangman at Nuremberg.  Not until 2004 at an art auction in New York City does the boy, now a man, find what he's been after.  We hope you will join us for this "meet the author" opportunity.

Ken Markel is a graduate of of New York University and former editor at Magazine Management, a pulp fiction company publishing adventure magazines. His short stories have appeared in TRUE, ADVENTURE LIFE, SPORTSMAN and MYSTERY TALES among others. Markel's fiction and poetry can be read in The American Bard, The Berkshire Review and the South Shore News. His play: THE AMERICAN WAY was performed under the direction of Lee Strasberg.  He holds a Master of Arts Degree from Queens College.
