Behind Enemy Lines
In 2005 Marthe Cohn was awarded the title of Chevalier de l’Ordre de la LÃ©gion d’Honneur.
As part of the Jewish Literary Festival, Marthe Cohn talked about her book, Behind Enemy Lines: The True Story of a French Jewish Spy in Nazi Germany, published by Three Rivers Press. She described being a member of the French First Army intelligence service during World War II and as such making many covert trips inside Nazi Germany. She recounted her missions as a French Jewish spy and described how she disguised herself as a young nurse searching for her fiancÃ© in order to find information about German troop movements. She was joined on the stage by her husband Dr. Cohn. Her presentation was introduced by a film from the Museum of Tolerance. After the presentation, the author answered questions from members of the audience.
