Bronx-born top turret-gunner Arthur Meyerowitz was on his second mission when he was shot down in Nazi occupied France in 1943. After fleeing the wreck, Arthur knocked on the door of an isolated farmhouse, whose owners hastily took him in. Fortunately, his hosts not only despised the Nazis but had a tight connection to the French resistance. Meyerowitz will join us to talk about his grandfather's fascinating experience, including his eventual return to America, that is told in more detail in his recently published book The Lost Airman: A True Story of Escape from Nazi Occupied France. Following the presentation Meyerowitz will be signing copies of his book.
