Wednesday, April 2, 3 pm ET, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Talk Radio for Fine Minds will travel from Hollywood, USA to Nuremberg, Germany to bring you two stories of World War II only recently uncovered.
Joining the show is author Tim Townsend whose new book Mission at Nuremberg, An American Army Chaplain and the Trial of the Nazis tells the controversial and thought-provoking story of Army Chaplain Henry F. Gerecke. At the end of World War II, Gerecke was recruited for the most difficult job of his life: ministering to twenty-one prominent Nazi leaders awaiting trial at Nuremberg, including Hermann Goering, a chief architect of Hitler’s “Final Solution” and Joachim von Ribbentrop, Foreign Minister of Nazi Germany. Townsend, a former religion reporter at the St. Louis Dispatch, holds master’s degrees from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and Yale Divinity School.
In Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War, Mark Harris brings us the untold story of the extraordinary wartime experiences of five of Hollywood’s greatest and most legendary directors, all of whom put their stamp on World War II, and were changed forever by their experience. Harris explores the “lost chapters” of celebrated directors: John Ford, William Wyler, John Houston, George Stevens, and Frank Capra who left Hollywood at the peak of their success to join the Armed Forces and shape the way America saw the war. Harris is the author of Pictures at a Revolution: Five Movies and the Birth of the New Hollywood, a New York Times notable book of the year, and a columnist for. Entertainment Weekly. He is a graduate of Yale University.
